INDIAN LAND AND FIRE MANAGEMENT TOPIC OF
At the next meeting of the Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley, guest speaker Kat High, director of the Haramokngna American Indian Cultural Center located in the Angeles National Forest, will tell the story of Haramokngna’s miraculous survival through the Station Fire and its recovery plan. The local Indians, the Tongva people, lived in the Crescenta Valley and managed and maintained it in the same way we maintain our homes and roads. They used fire, in the form of controlled burns, as a tool to promote health and diversity in the plants that grow in our local mountains. Over the thousand of years they lived here, they learned land use management techniques that are proactive, rather than reactive, and that can be employed effectively today.
The meeting is on Monday, June 21 at 7:00 p.m. at the Center For Spiritual Living (formerly known as the La Crescenta Church of Religious Science) located on the corner of Dunsmore and Santa Carlotta avenues.
