    Chumash move from striving to thriving

    Story & Photos By Sandra Hale Schulman
    Malibu, California (NFIC)

    In a land of movie stars, multi-million dollar ocean front homes and abundant resources, the original inhabitants, the Chumash, started out simply and humbly. They were hunter-gatherers and were adept at fishing the plentiful pacific waters. They are one of the relatively few New World peoples who regularly navigated the ocean (another was the Tongva, a neighboring tribe located to the south). Some settlements built plank boats called tomols, which made it easier to move goods and could even be used for whaling. Remains of a developed Chumash culture, including rock paintings apparently depicting the Chumash cosmology, can still be seen.
