Sharing the culture and history of the first peoples of Los Angeles County, Haramokngna American Indian Cultural Center sits on Red Box Saddle – the first resting spot on the trek from the sea to the desert. Haramokngna opened in a former fire station in 1998 with a special use permit from the Angeles National Forest. The people came here to gather the bounty of the mountains – the pine trees and pine nuts, yucaa, 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 exhibits the five native nations of the San Gabriel Mountains: Gabrieleno/Tongva, Chumash, Fernandeno/Tataviam, Kitanemuk and Serrano. These five Tribes share relationships with the lands and each other through the many trade routes through these mountains.
