Relive the spirit and culture of Southern
California's first settlers.


For over 25 years, Alan Salazar has worked with youth and adult groups for the purpose of sharing and saving native american culture and beliefs. As he states, the wisdom of tribal teachings- the moral fabric of native american culture- is designed to uplift and inspire others. Traditional indian tribal lessons not only give indian youth a sense of pride in their own culture, they also help young people from all backgrounds find purpose and worth in today's fast-paced and socially fragmented world.
