Grand Park is deeply saddened by the recent loss of our dear friend, advisor and beloved Tongva tribal elder, Julia Louise Bogany "Wiseone" (@julia_bogany ), of the Gabrieleño - Tongva Tribe.
🙏🏽 Grand Park is honored to have had the partnership and guidance from a loving matriarch such as Julia. Her legacy lives on through the invaluable contributions and lessons she passed on to the city of Los Angeles and Los Angeles' Native American communities. A culture educator and community leader, Julia shared valuable teachings and encouraged the youth. She always empowered and showed true leadership in historic moments such as the removal of the Christopher Columbus statue at Grand Park, to serving on Boards and being of service on the Tongva Tribal Council.
Grand Park is grateful to have shared in Julia's journey and will continue to uphold and uplift her work in the community. 🕊🙏🏽
