Rumsen Ranch – Part 1

Last Saturday, January 26th, we went to Trinity Anza, otherwise known as Rumsen Ranch, up in Anza, CA, 1.5 hours from the Claremont – Pomona area.

It was a healing ceremony, designed to heal and clean the land and start anew. Two tribal members fasted, praying and doing ceremony to better heal and clean the land.

The main focus was the military salute, for which there was a full day of events. There was a changing of the guard, a color salute, and a Veterans display.

Our council meeting also took place there, and it was particularly successful and the most attended, with more than 200 people there! wow.

Tours of the ranch were also given, considering the whole ranch is 900 acres! Tribal members and visitors got to see the houses/dorms, the main conference room, the kitchen, the bungalows, the classrooms, the Recreation Center, the Reception Center, and the many acres of forest.

Overall, it was a fun and informative weekend had by all. We can’t wait to go to Rumsen Ranch in Anza again!
