Photos: Chumash Tribe Marks Fall Equinox

The Wishtoyo Chumash Village in Malibu hosted a Fall Equinox Ceremony on Sunday. Locals and visitors gathered at the village, picnicked, walked the sacred grounds and participated in an ancient ceremony welcoming the fall season. The sunset ceremony began with a grand entrance led by Chumash ceremonial elder Mati Waiya.

Waiya said, “The fall equinox is a time of transition, a time of change, and a time to remember the spirit of loved ones that we carry within us.” Guests joined the ceremony by offering a prayer with the gift of tobacco and circling the fire before returning to their seats.
