 We were blessed with the prayers and teachings of grandma Gloria Arellanes, a Tongva leader in Los Angeles. She made us aware of the devastation occurring in the Bolsa Chica region, a land long stewarded by the Tongva, where many of their ancestors' graves have been disrupted by expansion, occupation, and gentrification.
