Night at the Museum – Indigenous History of Orange County

Wednesday, 04/17/2024
Adelia Sandoval

Guest speaker Adelia Sandoval will share the indigenous history of her people in Orange County, including their Mother central village for thousands of years in Putuidem, standing today 1.8 miles from the Mission San Juan Capistrano, one of the oldest missions in the United States. 

She will show us life before the Mission, long hidden in many respects for community protection, encompassing 265 native villages in Orange County.  Adelia will share life today for her people. Intertribal tensions and three divisions now prevent federal recognition, while they hope and dream of unity once more as their culture opens to view, after being buried under cities and in memories, to now reveal and honor their unique strengths, endurance, and invaluable contributions to humanity’s future.

Adelia is a lineal descendant of her Acjachemen Ancestors who were the original inhabitants of Orange County California. Adelia is the Spiritual Overseer (Púul) and Cultural Director for the Juaneño Band of Mission Indians/Acjachemen Nation, the indigenous people of Orange County California. She shares her Acjachemen Culture through art, writing, storytelling, and singing. Adelia is a ceremonial leader, song keeper, wisdom holder, tribal teacher, and healer.
