In honor of Tongva Matriarch Julia Bogany.
I had the privilege of being with Julia a few times at an event for the LA River and to bring in the New Year in Downtown.
She was generous, loving, wise and kind. I wish I got to know her more.
Sending my love and condolences to her family and friends and everyone that loved her. It is clear she is loved by so many.
We honor you. We celebrate your life and legacy. Thank you thank you thank you.
May your light shine through your children’s children for ever more.
Elder Julia created tobevisible.org to spread awareness about Tongva Culture.
