Central to the lives of all Southern California’s diverse communities and visitors, the Learning Center since 2003 has succeeded in inspiring and advancing discovery, understanding, and continuance of these tribal cultures, all integral to our national heritage. 

  • We offer hands-on activities and workshops that save & share Southern California’s Native American cultures;
  • We research, preserve, and document, especially through our publication arm, Ushkana Press;
  • We partner with tribes, museums, schools, and other organizations to serve all interested in learning;
  • We work with the general public and we also support tribal groups working to restore and revive our Native cultures.
