Honoring Native Culture in Oceanside: Local and Sustainable Ethnic Programs in Libraries

Honoring Native Culture in Oceanside: Local and Sustainable Ethnic Programs in Libraries | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"The San Luis Rey Band of Mission Indians  do not have a reservation or a cultural center, which made the request from tribal members for a special program more compelling. This is an ethnicity that is deeply rooted in Oceanside’s Southern California culture and geography, yet clearly one that had been underrepresented in community programs. The San Luis Rey Band of Mission Indians, having recently organized a photographic history of its members, and with the urging of the local Arts Commission, was looking for a place to display it. San Luis Rey Band captain Mel Vernon says that the library is, in fact, the one open channel that the tribe has to share local Native American history and experience with the broader community."
