Enjoy Outdoor Theater at Antelope Valley Indian Museum SHP

On Saturday May 6th from 6-9 p.m., join us for the Antelope Valley Indian Museum’s annual children’s performance of an American Indian story. Owl and the Bear, a traditional Chumash tale, is adapted in cooperation with Elder Ted Garcia to benefit the non-profit Friends of the Antelope Valley Indian Museum. Come out to enjoy theater under the sky, and support the museum!

The performance begins at 7 p.m. in the natural outdoor setting of “Little Theatre of the Standing Rocks.” From 6 p.m. until the performance begins and then afterwards until 9 p.m., food will be available for purchase and the museum will be open. The museum highlights American Indian peoples of California, Arizona, and New Mexico.

The history of theater at the museum dates back to 1932. Museum founder H. A. Edwards wrote an Indian pageant that was performed outdoors, near the museum, annually from 1932 to 1935. Edwards’ drama students from Lincoln High School played the main roles, and local friends and neighbors played the secondary roles. Edwards named his outdoor stage “Theatre of the Standing Rocks.”

The tradition continues with local children performing outdoor theatre at the museum. Kirstin Warren of Lake Los Angeles will play the part of Muhu the Owl. Kaya Gilson of Lake Los Angeles returns for her 5th year in the play, this time bringing her talents to the part of Xus the Bear. Leif and Zoe Hanson of Quartz Hill play Eagle and Coyote, respectively. Josh and Eli Rhyne, and Garret Alcaraz of Lancaster, play the Rabbit Brothers. Haley Diercks and Madison Kunkel of Lake Los Angeles are the Deer Sisters.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids age 6 to 12. Kids age 5 and under are free. Advance tickets are on sale at the Antelope Valley Indian Museum gift shop every Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Remaining tickets will be available for purchase at the door. Please, no pets. For more information, phone the museum at (661) 946-3055 (711 TTY relay service), or visit our website at www.avim.parks.ca.gov. Join us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/AVIndianMuseum.

Spring Tours at Tehachapi Native American Village Site

Only a few spots are left for the spring tour season at Tomo-Kahni State Historic Park in Tehachapi! Due to the extremely sensitive nature of the site, visitation is only permitted on a guided tour, which involves a moderately strenuous 3-hour hike.

Although no structures remain on this Kawaiisu Native American village site, the area’s rich history comes alive through the trained volunteer tour guides and the clues that the inhabitants left behind. Tomo Kahni means “winter home” in Kawaiisu, and rock rings mark the locations of many of the kahni, or homes, that were built of juniper boughs. Hundreds of mortar holes in the park tell of a very active past. The tour also includes Medicine Cave, Nettle Springs and a cave with pictographs- a sacred place of the Kawaiisu.

Spring tours will be offered Saturdays through June 10th. Activities begin at 8:30 a.m. with an orientation at the Tehachapi Museum in Tehachapi and last approximately 4 hours, including travel time to and from the park (transportation is not provided).

Please note: Those with heart conditions or breathing problems should NOT take this tour. Weather at the high-elevation park is variable, so layered clothing is recommended. Ample drinking water, sun protection, and sturdy walking shoes are also necessary.

Tour fee is $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 6-16 (age 5 and under are free, but not recommended on tours). Tours are limited to 15 people and fill up fast so reservations are highly recommended for an additional fee of $10 per party. To make a reservation or for more information, call (661) 724-1206 or email Tehachapi.District@parks.ca.gov.

Where: Tehachapi Museum, 310 S. Green Street, Tehachapi

When: Saturdays through June 10th, 8:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Cost: Adults: $5, Children age 6-16 $3, Children under 5 free.
