Recognizing Indigenous Settlement Patterns: Results from Pimu (Catalina Island, CA)
For 10 years, the Pimu Catalina Island Archaeology Project (PCIAP) has worked with the Gabrielino (Tongva) community to create a research agenda that acknowledges the Tongva’s cultural knowledge of the environment. Based on an Indigenous archaeology approach, PCIAP’s work recognizes that previous interpretations of Island Tongva settlement patterns do not accurately reflect how the Island Tongva viewed themselves upon the landscape nor their relationships to the people and items around them This presentation will discuss alternative ways of viewing the landscape and Pimu settlement patterns, framed Gabrielino (Tongva) worldviews.
