Book Talk: A Coalition of Lineages: The Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians
Wednesday, September 15, 2021 - 12:15pm - 1:30pm PST, Via Zoom
Please join us for a webinar for a new book authored by NNLPC's Founding Director, Professor Carole Goldberg and Professor Duane Champagne.
The Indigenous people who were brought to Mission San Fernando, northwest of present-day Los Angeles, came from autonomous, lineage-based villages, connected through ceremonies, trade, and intermarriage. Our new book, "A Coalition of Lineages," depicts the dispossession, attempted detribalization, persistence, and multicultural adaptations of these lineages, including formation of an overlapping Mission Indian identity and tribal organization. Although most histories of mission Indians end with the closing of the missions, our book presents powerful evidence that the Fernandeño tribal community has continued into the present. Even as a Tribe seeking federal recognition, the Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians has successfully pursued economic development, social welfare for its members, and engagement with federal, state, and local governments.
