Angels Gate Cultural Center or AGCC, in partnership with AQMNI Mural CO, and San Pedro High School Students announce a new mural, Tongva: Still Here. A public unveiling on May 2, at Angels Gate Cultural Center of this large-scale artwork marks the conclusion of an eight-week professional development workshop for San Pedro High School Students, AGCC Teen Mural Club.   

Tongva: Still Here is the culmination of the center’s first Teen Mural Club, which included eight weeks of professional training, planning, and painting by San Pedro High School Students under the mentorship of AQMNI Mural CO. The Teen Mural Club Students felt an immediate connection to the Tongva culture that still inhabits San Pedro. This connection sparked their interest and imagination, and they were eager to learn more about the tribe’s rich local history and traditions. Teen Mural Club Students met with the local native community members, who shared their lived experience and insights on Tongva and indigenous culture in order to plan their mural.
