I am so sorry that I missed seeing the billboards in Aug-Sept of 2021, but all these articles and websites regarding this photographic projects have been helpful for me to understand the scope. I am amazed! This is wonderful, and I hope LA can have many more projects involving educating the public about the Tongva, the indigenous peoples and their presence, the culture, artists, and
events that are happening.
