Wishtoyo Chumash Village is committed to holding the sacred fire open for ceremony and tending that fire for all First Nations Peoples to gather; along with our local communities.
"Humankind stands at a precipice. We accept our responsibility as stewards of nature, the source of our spiritual and bodily health. Our species does not exist in isolation from the biosphere; rather, our fate and that of our children and future generations depend on it."
Excerpt from the Declaration of The Gathering of Indigenous Spiritual Leaders - Practitioners of Nature, Wishtoyo Chumash Village October 8, 2011
