Embracing Our Culture


So that Chukchansi language, culture, and traditions do not disappear, the Language and Culture Department with the support of the people must listen to the wisdom and knowledge of our elders, who pass to us our history, songs, stories, crafts, and traditions to remind us of who we are and where we come from. We are determined to teach, learn, and document our language and culture to pass them on to future generations; our language, culture, and traditions define us as Chukchansi people.

To bring back our culture and language by learning our traditional crafts and ceremonies, singing our songs, preparing our foods, and telling our stories in our native language and on our ancestral lands to keep our families knowledgeable in our traditional ways for generations.
