Welcome to Puvungna!
Author: Puvungna Sacred Site Struggle
Type: tribal
Description: "Puvungna is the Indian village which once occupied the land where Cal State Long Beach now stands. Puvungna remains
sacred to the Gabrielino and other Indian people as a spiritual center from which their lawgiver and god -- Chungichnish --
instructed his people. Unfortunately, this tradition of learning and teaching which began with the Indian elders has yet to be
understood by campus officials. Plans to build a strip mall on the Puvungna site have been blocked by the Puvungna Sacred
Site Struggle. "
