2 June 5, 2015 THE ARROYO SECO. THE FIRST MUSEUM IN LOS ANGELES. OVER 100 YEARS OF HISTORY. Few places tell the story of LA quite like the Southwest Museum site. The vision of historian, ethnographer, and early preservationist Charles Lummis, this landmark is a treasured icon that embodies and celebrates his deep respect of native cultures. Looking back, Lummis always believed that the greatest gift to the future is an awareness of the past. Today, our gift to the future is a reinvigorated Southwest Museum site that honors its legacy and serves as a vibrant center of community life for the next 100 years. To do this, we need your collaboration, enthusiasm, and support. Get involved. Share your ideas. And Let s Treasure it Together. Dear Friends, On behalf of the City of Los Angeles, I welcome you to the 2015 Lummis Day celebration, hosted by the Lummis Day Community Foundation. Since its inception, Lummis Day has provided a tremendous stage for the best of music, dance, food, and art that Los Angeles has to offer. I hope you enjoy this unique celebration of history and artistic traditions with your friends, family, and neighbors. I send my best wishes for a memorable event and continued success.

YOUR VOICE IS A NECESSARY COMPONENT TO THE OVERALL HEALTH AND WELL BEING OF OUR COMMUNITY. Join us the 1st & 3rd Thursday of each month 7 pm to 9 pm Highland Park Senior Center 6152 N. Figueroa Street WE PROUDLY SUPPORT THE LUMMIS DAY FESTIVAL! LETTER FROM THE EDITOR Ten Years of Celebrating The Art and History of Our Community It s been a long journey. This year an army of volunteers will pitch in. They ll set up tables and chairs, place banners on our streets, erect stages and help direct traffic. Hundreds of musicians, dancers, poets, actors, artists, storytellers and other performers of every description will come together to offer a three-day rainbow of multi-cultural expression. There s no event quite like it in Southern California. The Lummis Day festival celebrates the things we love about our communities, but it was always intended to be something more than one big party. When the idea surfaced from our neighborhood councils a decade ago, we were looking at ways of strengthening the ties of community. We looked at our considerable assets: Northeast L.A. has history, a rich trove of stories and the legacies of colorful people who created some of this city s most valuable institutions. We have perhaps the most diverse population to be found anywhere in the city. We have community activists with a strong work ethic and a core group of volunteers who are willing to put in the time and effort to get things done. We looked at our challenges: It s tough to find consensus among often-fractious groups who had never previously worked together, groups with competing interests, different outlooks. And then there s funding: a free festival is an expensive undertaking and Northeast L.A. is not an affluent community. We weighed our plusses and our minuses. We became convinced there was a need for a community festival and a way to make it work. We named the event after Charles Lummis, who founded our city s first museum, championed Native American culture and whose name became synonymous with the advantages of cultural diversity. Through the enormous efforts of truly committed volunteers and with the help of our city officials, the festival was born. Frankly, we didn t really know what we were doing, but we were blessed with enthusiasm, optimism and Beginners Luck. Our Mission Lummis Day celebrates the arts, history and ethnic diversity of Northeast Los Angeles through educational and cultural events and an annual festival that draws the community together for a shared experience while providing a platform for cooperation among people of all ages and backgrounds. Ten years ago, we held small events at Lummis Home and at Sycamore Grove Park in the middle of a blistering heat wave. We had no canopies and few umbrellas. Still, people came. Artists performed and presented their work. The community came together. A decade later, Lummis Day is fulfilling its initial vision by bringing dozens of community organizations together for a cooperative effort that remains open to all who wish to participate. New working relationships have been fostered among arts groups and grassroots community organizations that have never worked together before. New avenues for community dialogue and collaboration have been created. Lummis Day s projects encompass more than the yearly festival we celebrate in June. The educational program for teachers, the poetry readings at public libraries and the annual film night make for a year-round effort and are important components of our program. This year, with events spread over three days at five locations, the Lummis Day Festival will feature artists representing the broad spectrum of Northeast L.A. s peoples. We re expanding to Boyle Heights, to the York Boulevard area of Highland Park and to the Southwest Museum. We re moving the main Sunday stages back to the larger-capacity grounds of Sycamore Grove Park. We re maintaining our presence at Lummis Home, where the Festival s first event was held. Through it all, Lummis Day remains an all-volunteer, free celebration and an opportunity to share our many cultural traditions. It s more than a party. But we sincerely hope you ll have fun. - Eliot Sekuler ( us at to volunteer or make suggestions.

5 ON GENTRIFICATION Boyle Heights Adjacent By Abel Salas BOARD OF SUPERVISORS COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES 856 Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration / Los Angeles, California Greetings to Northeast Los Angeles Hilda L. Solis Supervisor, First District I am honored to be your representative on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and look forward to hearing about the needs and priorities from the communities of Northeast Los Angeles. My doors are always open to you. The County is a resource to its residents, and I want to make sure you access the County s information, programs, and services. Please free to contact my office for any assistance at (323) or visit us online at Sincerely, Hilda L. Solis Supervisor, First District In 2010, I wrote a prose piece titled Everything is Boyle Heights Adjacent. It was a loving tribute to the neighborhood that I ve called home for about six years but which had long since been a metaphorical and spiritual homeland. It was also a vociferous rant against gentrification and the dislocation of long-time residents that gentrification precipitates. Those who read it were surprised at its stridency. Among those who weighed in on it was a leader in affordable housing development, a woman who I admired and continue to admire. Her work at the helm of a non-profit development corporation established to empower and improve the quality of life for East Side residents is now almost legendary. Because of her organization, the Boyle Hotel was restored and is a now a sterling example of conservancy and listed on the national registry of historic buildings. Her response echoed that of many. While well-intentioned, I was not raised on the East Side of Los Angeles. So she, and many like her, were right to question why I would rail so loudly about the evils of an impending hipster takeover that would change the nature and character of a community I had come to know and love but in which I was, essentially, a new arrival. In the rant, I waxed poetic about the things that made and still make Boyle Heights the incredibly wonderful place it is. My list was loaded with entities, organizations, people and landmarks that are ignored and dismissed by those who see neighborhoods like Boyle Heights, Lincoln Heights and Highland Park as diamonds in the rough, robust enclaves only one step away--with the addition of their expertise, creativity, drive and ambition from becoming the hot new neighborhoods where newcomers very much like themselves and quite unlike the residents who made those places robust to begin with, might begin gravitating to with glee. Obviously, my own tour through the predominantly Mexican American East Side had always been colored by a particularly privileged sense of identity, a sense that comes equipped with the belief that I belong, that I have more in common with those who have lived, worked and loved in the barrio than any of those co-called pioneering trendsetters will ever have. It was that sense of belonging and an appreciation for its history that led me, a late comer, to create a newspaper that touted all of the incredible artistic and creative energy that had defined Boyle Heights and East LA for two generations, long before I d been touched by that magnetic pull across the southwest, the same tug that had drawn so many Chicanos along I-10 from as far away as Houston. For my father, a Texas-born Chicano whose wanderlust had taken him from the cotton fields to the battlefield in Korea, California was the great escape. And Los Angeles loomed large for him because it was the land of opportunity and it represented the pinnacle of art, music and culture, the capital of Mexican-America. He d been making the trek west from the time he d been discharged honorably after the Korean War and subsequently enlisted in the Navy. He logged time in Los Angeles and San Francisco before family and life took him back home to the Gulf Coast. He keeps photographs he took on the streets of Watts in 1965 when racial tensions came to a boil in South LA. It wasn t long thereafter that he brought us all out here with the idea that LA was where we belonged. I was six, and we settled in La Puente, part of the San Gabriel Valley that is a natural extension of what I have lately, as a die-hard community advocate and the publisher of a small community arts monthly called Brooklyn & Boyle, termed the Greater East Side. Yet I remain torn because there is still a part of me that wonders, as I did openly in the rant (located easily with a quick Google search), if I myself have been indirectly responsible for some gentrification. It is no secret that the periodical I publish highlights the overwhelming beauty and undeniable depth and breadth of the cultural capital that Boyle Heights, an ethnically diverse community by default because the restrictive covenants that had historically prohibited minorities from renting or buying property in most other parts of LA did not exist here, represents. I am guilty of being a very vocal Boyle Heights booster. But at what cost? Is the magical nature of the neighborhood diminished when home flippers, developers and speculators begin scooping up housing stock and property they will offer the inevitable tide of artists and entrepreneurs that will soon [CONTINUED ON PAGE 11] 8 9

6 Mariachi Plaza FRIDAY, JUNE 5 Mariachi Tierra Mexicana de Oscar Chavez Mariachi Tierra Mexicana De Oscar Chavez is comprised of three generations of musicians-- grandparents, parents and children --who share the joy of the Mariachi musical tradition. The group was originally formed by musicians from the states of Colima, Zacatecas, Jalisco and Michoacan and took the name Tierra Mexicana ( Land of Mexico ) in honor of their wide-ranging Mexican origins. They have recently released a new recording that is available in all digital formats. The Location Boyle Heights was L.A. s most multi-cultural neighborhood for many decades in the early and mid-20th century and remains among the city s most vital engines of creative expression. At its center is Mariachi Plaza, where East First Street, Boyle and Pleasant Avenues come together. The Plaza takes its name from the mariachi musicians who have gathered there in their elegant charro suits to seek work since the 1930s. They still gather today, sharing space with the Metro station, the Farmers Market, the Libros Schmibros bookstore and library and the many other businesses that contribute to the vitality of this great crossroads. Lummis Day is grateful to the Boyle Heights Farmers Market for their partnership in staging our first festival in this neighborhood. [CONTINUED ON PAGE 13] Boyle Heights Adjacent [CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9] flock to 1 st Street and Cesar Chavez to open the trendy shops and restaurants that are sure to come, businesses that will not cater to long-time residents but which are, by nature, bellwethers of what NPR has euphemistically called re-tenanting. By shouting from the rooftops and bellowing loudly about how truly cool Boyle Heights and the East Side are, have I not been at least a small part of the reason there is so much interest in a place which, for decades, was written off as a gang-infested slum? There are no simple answers to these and so many other questions with respect to gentrification. But these are conversations which must take place between newcomers and those who have called historically ethnic neighborhoods home for more than half a century. It is not a racial issue and those who reduce it to that merely fan the flames of hate, distrust and conflict. Witness Baltimore. To those who eye places like Boyle Heights with excitement, ideas and a vision of futures built, essentially, on the dislocation of working-class people, I can only say, Whoa. Slow down. Get to know us. Love us. We re kind of okay people. For many, your arrival is not a symbol of improvement, a change or shift that we should be thanking you for, this in spite of the fact that you genuinely and sincerely believe that s all you ve come here to do

7 Mariachi Plaza FRIDAY, JUNE 5 Diavolo Institute Youth Performance Company from STAR Prep Academy performing T.R.U.S.T. T.R.U.S.T. is the interactive performance piece from the Lincoln Heights-based Diavolo Education Company (Volo). T.R.U.S.T. stands for Teamwork, Respect, Unity, Solidarity and Trust. The show is an interactive, exciting, accessible performance that brings the aesthetic experience of Diavolo to schools throughout LA County. T.R.U.S.T includes excerpts from several different pieces in the Diavolo repertory, showcasing many different aspects of Diavolo and its unique style of movement. Instructors from Diavolo Institute have taught this T.R.U.S.T. show to the students at STAR Prep Academy as part of the organization s Creative Constructions program. The students learn a taste of the Diavolo technique and receive an introduction to the Company s movement vocabulary and values of trust and teamwork. Luis J. Rodriguez Luis J. Rodriguez is the Poet Laureate of Los Angeles. His last poetry book, My Nature is Hunger, won the 2005 Paterson Book Award. He has a dozen other books in poetry, children s literature, fiction, and nonfiction, including the best-selling memoir, Always Running, La Vida Loca, Gang Days in L.A. Luis is also founding editor of the small press, Tia Chucha Press, now in its 25 th year, and co-founder of Tia Chucha s Centro Cultural & Bookstore in the San Fernando Valley.

He was a featured reader at the 2013 Lummis Day Festival. Jessica Fichot Atwater-based chanteuse, songwriter and accordionist Jessica Fichot is a lot like her hometown of Paris: French at heart, but with a soul that s truly international. Drawing from her multi-ethnic French / Chinese / American upbringing, her music fuses styles and languages, taking the listener on a twisting journey out of the French chanson tradition, into the lands of gypsy jazz, 1940s Shanghai swing, international folk and into the wilderness of her imagination. Fichot has brought the exotic charms of her imagination to audiences across the world, armed with her accordion and accompanied by her fiery band and multilingual vocals. With her most recent release Dear Shanghai in hand - a work entirely sung in Mandarin Chinese and celebrating the swing era sounds of her mother s hometown - she will be heading out to China to perform just a few days following the Lummis Day festival!

Los Angeles, CA Free Admission Richard Duardo wanted you to be brilliant. Famous was okay but always be brilliant dammit or die trying. We produced a large rock concert in the early 90 s and OMG what the hell were we thinking? Rage Against the Machine, Cypress Hill, Tijuana No, Jose Montoya, Russell Means and thirty other bands from around the continent converged in a parking lot for another Battle of LA. It was Pre-Coachella and we had dreams baby but after the largest mosh pit in LA history on the bloody pavement of the Olympic Auditorium parking lot reality set in. As we counted ticket stubs thru the night and we realized we were 40K short of our goal at that exact moment Richard put his arm around me and with a huge smile said: Welcome to Rock & Roll kid! And with that my Dark Prince and mentor sauntered off into the night with pal Tito Larriva of the PLUGZ who wore pajamas the whole day and sped off in a black Porche. This was the circus, the Big Top actually, Big Top Locos where a young Lalo Medina cut his teeth that day with King Taco as he was the only one to make a penny for us Lalo now manages Jack White and Duardo loved this too! That he brought us in to a world we knew little about but left the experience butt-sore and pockets empty but ready to go out and conquer anew. Failure or not we were brilliant that day and we went on to Big Top Locos ll always rocking for causes like The Children of Chiapas. It was never about us. The party had to have a cause and ART and projected film and blistering music and blood and guts and a tireless team of restless artists pushing the boundaries. Rolo Castillo of 50 Bucks & TAZ, Linda Brasero, the vatos of Atlas Sound and many others that could put on a show and make a powerful statement of art and peace in a violent world. Richard was grace at the center of the chaos. And he left us that gift. He understood money and how to move it around but could never hang on to much of it - he burned thru it and enjoyed it money was not the measurement with him or of him.

10 Richard Duardo [CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9] brilliant production studios were a model of form and function and art and he knew the intersection well where art met social justice. Duardo could scold or pep talk you and pick you up and dust you off and shove you out there to do something brilliant. I always left him feeling inspired and wanting to do art. He was a dandy to the end, looking sharp, his famous suits dazzling Sacramento in the early 80 s! Who was that guy and what just happened? Chicano Art just got dragged into the 21st Century and we held fast onto Richard s tailored suit coat. We all took something from Duardo, advice, prints, credit, American Spirit smokes, his urban and urbane Buddhism I just hope I left something for him down by the River. He blasted my father s Pachuco Portfolio when we produced a memorial poster this year Listen to that language He shouted, because he recognized brilliance because Jose Montoya s language was only as sharp as Duardo s eye and exacto blade. Original & authenticity are terms I see thrown around all the time the latest art killaz straight out of the suburbs couldn t fill a paint can with an ounce of what Richard had and some of us are angry that he had it so hard for so many years, the threats the art & bill collectors, the biters but I digress, and I promised Richard s kin, his stellar sister Lisa, rock solid carnales Oscar and Bruno, his nieces and nephews that we would borrow from Richard s peaceful way and stay focused on him. We will tap into His calm His Art of War His Tao - his restlessness and his hugely generous corazon and lay our weapons down from the frontlines Hecho En Aztlan, serigraph by Richard Duardo Picasso, serigraph by Richard Duardo of the culture war that rages all around us whether we recognize it or not. He understood relationships and that they had dynamics and he reveled in telling me off every once in a while but only because I needed it. Get over yourself He would say as I underpaid or over paid for prints I already had. Do I owe him? Yes. The stars came to him too: Shepard, Banksy, Cheech and more, and it could very well be these folks who he counted as friends who might be the very ones who keep his important zen/dojo/studio open and productive. There is urgency with all of this. Many depended on Richard. He carried the water for many. So let us circle the wagons, gather the horses, clean the squeegees and calm the headwaters so we can carry Brother Richard down to the River and send him peacefully out to the Pacific Yemaya! and ever upward into the Heart of Lightness The stars came indeed, but none shone brighter than that crazy brilliant star Richard.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has designated the Southwest Museum site a National Treasure. This year s Arroyo Arts Collective-Lummis Day event is the first Lummis Day Festival to be held at the Museum. The Lummis Day Community Foundation thanks the Autry National Center and the National Trust for Historic Preservation for their assistance in mounting this year s festival and is grateful to the Arroyo Arts Collective for assembling this year s art and poetry exhibition and tribute to the late Richard Duardo. Brenda Hurst Black Jay Mike Mollett Twist Peter Hess Eastside Patty Sue Jones Richard Duardo Donna Bates Pop My Collar Roderick Smith Angels Flight Detail Back to the Roots: A Tribute To Richard Duardo in Images and Poems Presented by the Arroyo Arts Collective in conjunction with the Lummis Day Festival Produced by Gwen Freeman, Jeanie Frias (curator, art) and Linda Kaye (curator, poetry) to the Roots: A Tribute to Richard Duardo is a multi-media program featuring art, poetry Back and music inspired by the late artist, master printmaker and creative spark of Los Angeles artist community. The Arroyo Arts Collective has assembled the works of 30 Los Angeles area artists and six poets which will include a remembrance of the late artist to be held at noon on Saturday, June 6 in the Museum s courtyard followed by a reading of poems reflecting the exhibition s theme. Painter and muralist Wayne Healy and writer Abel Salas will be among those taking part in the Saturday mid-day tribute. The poetry reading, hosted by Linda Kaye, will follow.

The pop-up exhibit will take place within the historic Southwest Museum site s Norman F. Sprague, Jr. Auditorium a gallery space made available by the Autry National Center of the American West which is serving as a Lummis Day sponsor. Born in Boyle Heights and raised in Highland Park, Richard Duardo played a pivotal role in the growth of the L.A. arts community. His serigraphs of iconic popular culture figures were highly praised and he was famously generous in his dealings with other artists In its outreach to participating artists and poets, the Arroyo Arts Collective called for work that examines the social, artistic and political influences that affect our local artists. Back to the Roots was designed to reflect the neighborhoods, families, cultures and politics of Northeast Los Angeles. THE ARTISTS Donna Bates combines realism and graphic boldness in her figurative paintings to create big, dramatic and sexy statements. Joanne Chase-Mattillo creates a surreal, dreamlike quality in her photographs of Los Angeles. Using thermal infrared readings, she inspires the imagination of the viewer to go beyond a traditional reading of their environment. Chuka Susan Chesney draws inspiration from her personal life and her surroundings. Her intense but playful paintings are made up of layers of lines, washes, and bold colors. Raoul De la Sota offers a typical Northeast LA landscape that could be a pleasant backyard scene or a statement about cultural barriers.

Peter Hess employs a central painting encircled by pictorial tiles. The core image states the theme and creates context while the illuminated tiles offer an opportunity for sustained looking. Linda Lyke creates ambiguous suggestive images by allowing the monotype process to inform the idea. She explores the energy and quintessential realities of the culture of Los Angeles and the world. Brian Mendez establishes a dialogue and collaboration with the natural world. Abstract figures emerge that convey a struggle between time, the elements, belief systems, and cultures. His work is about reconciling with our environments with the hope of discovering what has been lost and forgotten. Mike Mollett s current sculptures of time-twists and wall-weaves are drawn from a palette of linear materials gathered from local sources. They playfully reveal the culture we live in. Roderick Smith creates a broad description of the landscape around us; a jostling circus of colliding motifs assembling and disassembling in a never ending performance towards identity. Devin Thor s sculpture series Paleolithic Creatures is an homage to our prehistoric ancestors who painted the walls of caves with the animals that inhabited their world. He reminds us that extinction is forever and that humans must be respectful stewards of planet Earth. Diane Williams depicts representational figures of women and animals as metaphor for the self-juxtaposing disparate, disjointed and repeated elements and situating imagery that hinges on internal contradiction and incongruity. Brenda Hurst was influenced by L.A. Latino artists from the early 80s. Following the work of these artists, a dream came true when Black Jay was silkscreened at Richard Duardo s Modern Multiples studio. Cidne Hart is currently kneedeep in etching and cyanotypes and appreciates opportunities to make and exhibit work that is about our neighborhood. Diane Behrens paints her landscapes in and around Northeast L.A., capturing the unique flavor of the neighborhoods. Kevin Hass photographs with film inside his camera! When he isn t photographing old railroad cars, he s photographing around the Highland Park neighborhood. Patty Sue Jones employs loose painterly brushstrokes, blending oil colors directly on the canvas to stimulate the thoughtful and mysterious moods of her subjects. Sergio Teran tells stories found in the margins of a diverse urban landscape. His prints and paintings are visceral, physical, and personal mythologies of his Los Angeles. Timothy Sellers is re-portraiting the broken and bashed sculptures found in the great U.S. museums, including Greek and Roman pieces, African masks and modern sculptures.

Based in Highland Park, P.O.P. is notable for performances featuring a broad variety of operatic repertoire, for its benefit to the larger artistic community of Southern California and for providing a fully professional environment for their artists. Several of their innovative productions have been mounted at the Highland Park Ebell Club, bringing Grand Opera to Northeast Los Angeles for the very first time. In 2015 Pacific Opera has returned with four POP-Up productions. They include Abduction from the Seraglio in March and Ariadne auf Naxos which completed its run in May. Upcoming are Verdi s Falstaff, set for September 12,13,19 and 20 at Glendale s Forest Lawn Memorial Park and the early Donizetti slapstick Viva La Momma, November 12, 13, 14, 17 and 19, back at the Highland Park Ebell Club. POP performs regularly in public venues, bringing this traditional musical theatre form to audiences who think they won t understand it or can t afford it. The troupe s generous performance at the 2014 Lummis Day Noisemaker Award Dinner was a highlight of that event. Gothic Tropic Los Angeles Gothic Tropic introduces some hard edges to the playful world of psych-pop. The brainchild of Cecilia Della Peruti, Gothic Tropic keeps the vibe playful, but measured and dark with a unique lead guitar and vocal style that recalls catchy elements of pre-punk 70s acts such as Television and Can. The type of music Gothic Tropic plays is comparable to jazz in the way its creation is approached: its success is based upon each member s ability to collaborate but also individually flourish. Cecilia Della Peruti was born in New Jersey and lived with her father, composer and jazz player Carl Della Peruti. She moved to LA at age 11 to live with mother Juliana Gondek, internationally acclaimed vocalist and pedagogue. Della Peruti works professionally as a touring auxiliary and TV performer and has appeared with Joseph Gordon-Levitt on HitRecordTV, Late Night with Seth Myers and more. She collaborates with Blake Sennett of Rilo Kiley, Ryan Adams, The Location The intersection of York Boulevard and Avenue 50 became the epicenter of Highland Park redevelopment with the opening earlier this year of the new York Boulevard Park, a 1/3 acre plot that morphed from a gas station to a dangerous eyesore and finally, to a beautifully designed family-friendly play space equipped with a small amphitheater, shock absorbent pavement and built-in musical instruments. Councilmember Jose Huizar engaged the community in the park s design and development and the results of the collaboration is a public facility that has become a source of pride for the community.

15 York Blvd. at Ave. 50 SATURDAY, JUNE 6 The Elliott Caine Quintet Inspired by 60 s Blue Note style jazz and by the music of Tito Puente and Mongo Santamaria, the Elliott Caine Quintet plays original compositions as well as those by such masters as Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley and Donald Byrd. The group has released four CDs- Orientation, Le Supercool, Blues From Mars, and Hippie Chicks On Acid, all of which received extensive airplay in both the U.S. and abroad. Two of Elliott s original compositions were used in the Los Angeles Theatre Center s production of the Tony Award winning play revival of Sideman, reprised for a week in May, 2010 at the Skirball Center in Los Angeles, featuring many of the original cast members. Elliott s trumpet playing was also utilized for the LATC production of Look Back in Anger in Both productions were broadcast nationally on NPR. Céili dancing is a type of Irish social folk dance which evolved into an art form in the early twentieth century, with jig steps, traveling steps, and non-stop flow from one figure to another, always with multiple partners and progressive movements. Some typical dances are Walls of Limerick, Siege of Ennis, Haymaker s Jig, and the Fairy Reel. Aedan MacDonnell started tap and ballet at the age of six and has been doing some type of dance ever since, including many forms of traditional and folk dance. Most recently she has been studying the step dance styles from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, which were brought over by Scottish highlanders; Ottawa Valley step dance, which is a mixture of European, French-Canadian and tap; and Irish sean-nós dance, which is the precursor to the current Irish step dance we think of as typical. Aedan is also a professional, awardwinning harper, but her secret love is percussive dance. Mariachi Tradición de Fernando Rios Mariachi Tradición de Fernando Rios was formed in early 2000 to bring the beautiful music of Mexico to the Highland Park community. The group has performed throughout Southern California at events that have included the Orange County Fair, the Whittier Mariachi Festival and many more. They have performed with various Latino music artists and have performed at many recording sessions. The band is based in Northeast Los Angeles with members living in Mt. Washington and adjoining neighborhoods. Celtic Céili Dancers and Aedan McDonnell, Step Dancer The Celtic Céili Dancers are Caitríona, Erin, Larry, Linda, MaLisa and Tim, all Irish and Irish-American people who share a love of Celtic culture, language and art. (Some of the group members are fluent in Gaeilge, the Irish language.) The Chalk Artists Chalk artists Willie Zen, Mri Scott Elbey, Adriana Salgado, Lori Antoinette W, Aldonia R. Bailey, Liz Espinoza, and Ever Galvez met at the Pasadena Chalk Art Festival where they ve participated as an informal group for the past 15 years. The diversity of their styles reflects the influences of their varying backgrounds and differing levels of training though they share the common love for the physically demanding challenge of creating their work on the horizontal surfaces of streets and sidewalks.

16 OCCIDENTAL COLLEGE AND NORTHEAST LOS ANGELES The Next Chapter By Jeremiah B.C. Axelrod and Robert Kieft An Institute for the History of Los Angeles is being developed at Occidental College to facilitate studies of the history and culture of the city with a focus on Northeast Los Angeles. Occidental College has always intertwined its history with the landscape and people of Northeast Los Angeles, having begun in Boyle Heights in 1887, moved to Highland Park in 1898, and, finally, settled in its current Eagle Rock home in This shared history is composed of a series of fascinating chapters, revolving around stories of Native and Latino resilience; explosive real estate development; deeply rooted neighborhoods slowly transformed by waves of new settlers; business, political, and academic connections in the community; and a myriad of long-standing individual relationships. Indeed, the College s urban context here in Northeast Los Angeles is inscribed right into its core Mission and long-term Strategic Plan, which reads in part: Our location in Southern California provides Occidental College with unmatched cultural and natural resources. The City of Los Angeles is one of the most dynamic metropolitan environments in the world and is an unparalleled place to study the intersection of the natural and cultural spheres. We will significantly increase the advantage of our location by creating additional partnerships and connections with various Los Angeles institutions and organizations. In order to begin writing the next chapter in that long relationship, and to enact the College s strategic vision under President Jonathan Veitch, the college is working to create the Institute for the History of Los Angeles (IHLA) to coordinate and support its scholarly and cultural efforts in its home region. This proposed Institute, currently being developed under the leadership of historian Jeremiah B. Axelrod, PhD, and an advisory committee of faculty and staff from throughout the college, is founded squarely on a philosophy of deep and continuing collaboration between members of the college community and a host of crucial Northeast LA community partners, civic organizations, elected officials, and public interest foundations. Its central purpose will be to collect, study, and share the history and culture of this region, with a particular emphasis on the multicultural heritage of Northeast Los Angeles, by building upon Occidental students energy and insight, faculty and staff expertise, coordinated archival programs, and integral partnerships with our partner organizations. The Institute s main goals will be to: Provide curricular coordination and support on topics related to the Southern California region, with particular emphasis on the diverse NELA urban community and its rich social and cultural history. The Institute seeks to build on the breadth of current courses relating to local topics and the high level of faculty and student enthusiasm for such study to foster further interdisciplinary partnerships and facilitate faculty-led efforts to integrate the culture, environment, and history of the region into the curriculum through information sharing, course development, and workshops on community-based research and teaching methods; Support student-centered research and public history efforts, particularly in concert with community-based educational and cultural institutions such as public schools, museums, and cultural/historical organizations. Together, we will work to preserve vital historical and cultural materials, buttress local historical/cultural organizations, and increase the diversity of voices and sources represented in scholarly research. Conversely, the Institute will connect organizations, institutions, and individuals with the resources and expertise available among students and faculty; Make Occidental a principal archive of Northeastern Los Angeles, building on such successful initiatives as our Northeast Los Angeles Newspaper Project (a collaboration between the College Library, Highland Park Heritage Trust, and Eagle Rock Valley Historical Society), and thus anchoring a multi-institutional effort to make that accumulated knowledge widely and freely available; and Foster and publicize an active public dialogue on the region s heritage and cultures. We seek to share this enthusiasm for gathering, enhancing, creating, preserving, and making use of vital source materials that shed light on Los Angeles through a series of public events, performances, and exhibitions. These events would aim to preserve shared memory and enable stakeholders throughout the community to participate in informed, thoughtful discussions about the region s past, present, and future. A key component, symbolically and physically, in the planning for the IHLA is El Alisal, the amazing historic home that Charles Lummis built on Avenue 43 at the Arroyo. Lummis s home has served over the decades as a community landmark, headquarters for the Historical Society of Southern California, and site for many of the activities of Lummis Day. Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks is currently working hard to maintain public access to the house, which belongs to the City, but simply does not have the resources to fund needed repairs and restoration. Since this last summer, Occidental College has been actively pursuing fundraising to enable the College to assume stewardship of the house so that it might serve as an off-campus IHLA base and site for meetings, community partner events, exhibitions, workshops, symposia, and educational activities that will benefit the entire community. The college is seeking support for this effort, particularly as they work to raise the funds through donations to properly and fully restore El Alisal. NELA is rich in historic buildings and in organizations, institutions, and community groups devoted to social and political activism, the visual and performing arts, education, and - following Charles Lummis s interests in a variety of cultural traditions - a vibrant, multicultural community. According to the college, the new Institute wants to work with community partners to explore this multifaceted history because in many ways the school s history is the history of Northeast Los Angeles, and vice versa. The many connections over time between the college and its communities suggest that the Institute will define Lummis Home, aka El Alisal, during construction (ca.1900) and as it appears today, above. Using stones from the Arroyo Seco riverbed, Charles Lummis began construction on the house in 1896 and completed it in El Alisal The Sycamore takes its name from the trees that were abundant in the area, one of which still stands in the home s courtyard. what it means to offer a liberal arts education in a specific urban location. Students come to Occidental and NELA to intertwine a life of serious learning and scholarship with an active and progressive role as citizens of a larger community. With the collaboration and insights of these students and the college s community partners, the proposed Institute for the History of Los Angeles proposes to explore and deepen Northeast Los Angeles s diverse cultural identities and begin a fascinating new chapter in Occidental College s long history in the community

The name El Alisal comes from local sycamore trees, one of which is featured in the home s interior courtyard. The design of the home was influenced by mission architecture and the dwellings of the Pueblo Indians. The main hall has a sloped concrete floor so that after a party Lummis called them Noises -- it could easily be cleaned with a bucket of water.

Stand Easy also features Jeff Cullen on highland pipes, whistles and vocals, Ken Lasaine on guitars, Paul Trutner on bass, and Alexa Brinkshulte on drums. The band came together to share in John s vision of creating a landmark fusion of commercial songwriting, Celtic music, and rock & roll. Stand Easy performs original songs, traditional songs and instrumentals. They have performed at many prestigious festivals and on many concert stages throughout the U.S and Europe. Stand Easy has recorded three albums which have received airplay on over a hundred radio stations in the U.S.A., Scotland (BBC Radio Scotland), Canada and Mexico. Their most recent CD is titled Not Just Intonation. The name means to cause a ruckus, and Buyepongo lives up to that promise by pushing music to the limit, moving massive crowds to dance nonstop and demonstrating that Latin music runs through their veins in a flow of original songs and unique compositions. With deep roots in South and Central America, Buyepongo draws heavily from pan-latin music culture, taking their cues from many forms of roots music. Influenced by the traditional sounds of Colombia, Mexico, Haiti, Belize, Honduras and the Dominican Republic, their arrangements create a vibrant sound that seamlessly fuses merengue, punta and cumbia. The group s pulse and power is built around the drum and guacharaca (pronounced: wah cha rah ca), giving them an upbeat tropical flare. Growing up as young Latinos in Southern California, Buyepongo were not only exposed to the music of their culture but also to the music of their time. From teenage punk rock angst to sample driven underground hip hop, from classic reggae to jazz and funk, the musicians of Buyepongo have explored many worlds of rhythm and sound. Even their name is a nod to the Wu Tang Clan track, Bring da Ruckus from the seminal album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), one of their sonic inspirations. [CONTINUED ON PAGE 39] The Location Created as a public park in 1905, the park features the Sousa-Hiner Bandshell, named after bandleader Dr. Edwin M. Hiner, and his friend John Philip Sousa who frequently performed there and created some of the world s most famous marching band repertoire. The grounds had served as a meeting place long before the city purchased the property. In the late 19 th century, Sycamore Grove was known as a rowdy area, served by beer stands and a frequent site of state picnics : gatherings of those who had migrated to Los Angeles from other states. One such event drew 15,000 Missouri natives, among the largest crowds recorded in the park. During its early years, the park featured a wading pool that served as a magnet for young people during the summer months. The Lummis Day Festival celebrated its first event at Sycamore Grove Park in 2006 and held additional festival events there through 2009 before moving its music stages to the charming but smaller confines of Heritage Square Museum
