“Tovaangar” means “the world,” as seen through the eyes of the Tongva, the first residents of the land in southern California. This land was theirs before it belonged to anyone else, before European settlers arrived and began to bend the region to their will and Tovaangar disappeared.   This is my tribute to our great land, a living and breathing being who provides endless sustenance for us all.
