Join us for a series of special events connected to our latest exhibit, “Tevaaxa’nga (Te-vaah-ha-nga) to Today: Stories of the Tongva People.” In this workshop, Tongva artist Craig Torres will guide participants in creating traditional clapper stick instruments from elderberry bush branches. This workshop is recommended for adults and children ages 8 and up.
