Sharing the Los Angeles first peoples culture and history
Haramokngna opened in 1998, with a special use permit from the Angeles National Forest, in a former fire station. The site where Haramokngna sits is on Red Box Saddle – the first resting spot on the trek from the sea to the desert. So the people came here to gather the bounty of the mountains – the pine trees and pine nuts, the bay laurel, the black oak acorns, and to come together – to renew family ties, trade songs, stories, and gossip, and to meet eligible youth from the other side of the mountains.
The front building being transfer into a interpretive exhibit of the five Tribes of the San Gabriel Mountains: Gabrieleno/Tongva, Chumash, Fernandeno/Tataviam, Kitanemuk and Serrano. These five tribes explored in their pre-contact relationships with the land, and with each other via the trade routes through these mountains.
