Presented by Alfred Cruz, Acjachemen descendant, and Patricia Martz, president of the California Cultural Resources Preservation Alliance and Professor emerita of anthropology and archaeology at California State University, Los Angeles.

The Acjachemen were among the earliest people to live in California and thrived there without outside contact for thousands of years. They adapted to many of the environmental changes that we face today, including drought, climate change, and rising sea levels. At the time of contact the Native American population was estimated at 310,000 but had dropped to less than 20,000 by the turn of the 19th century. Join Cruz and Martz as they share the story of the Juaneño/Acjachemen from pre-contact to the present.
