Santa Monica Mountains - Archeology


The Santa Monica Mountains have more than 1,000 archeology sites of significance, primarily from the Californian Native American cultures of the Tongva and Chumash people. The mountains were part of their regional homelands for over eight thousand years before (and after) the arrival of the Spanish invaders, known as the Spanish colonizers. They mostly became extinct after USA annexation of the area.
