All About Ojai: Julie Tumamait
The History, Culture and Plant Knowledge of the Chumash People

The Chumash were Ojai’s first inhabitants, living here for thousands of years before European explorers arrived. The livelihood of the Chumash people was based upon their subsistence upon the available natural resources – plants, animals, and fish, and their sustainable ways of utilizing these resources. They found use for almost every type of plant and animal available – for food, clothing, medicine and tools. Their environment inspired their art, their beliefs, their stories, ceremonies and songs.
