In cooperation with the Lummis Day Festival the Arroyo Arts Collective presents

A Puppet Workshop series: “The First Northeast Angelinos”

 Saturdays, May 13, 20 and 27
10 am - 12 noon, Free

Franklin Transportation Academy
southwest end of Franklin High School campus
Look for the signs at
Irvington Place and Avenue 53

We co-created 3 large street puppets inspired by the oldest stories of our area, those that come from the Tongva people. The puppets were part of a procession and display at the Lummis Day Festival on June 4th.
 
Children and adults were welcome to come hear Tongva stories, and joined in the exciting process of community art making!
 
Our storyteller (May 13) was Don Newton, a community activist, poet, painter and long time resident of Northeast Los Angeles. His book "The Beginning of the World" is a collection of stories and legends of the Tongva.
