A Chumash Plank Canoe, Paddlers, and families of the Chumash Community will be in Avila Beach for our annual gathering. This is a practice for the Chumash paddlers in preparation for the Channel Island Crossing in September, back to our homeland.

Please come and join us in offering blessings for all mankind, Mother Earth, the Plant and the Animal Nations, and for all things that live together to make our home.  Be with Chumash People working together to better our community in a healthy way.

We must take care of our waters - our oceans, rivers, streams and springs, for they
are the lifeblood. Please join the Chumash Community and our wonderful sponsors in
this great celebration of communities coming together to weave a brighter future.
