Indigenous Peoples Day is celebrated on the second Monday of October to honor the histories of Native cultures and to recognize the value of the many contributions made to our community through Indigenous peoples’ knowledge, labor, spirituality, technology, science, philosophy, arts and the deep cultural contribution that substantially shaped the character of Santa Ana.

Several Indigenous cultures dwelled in the area we call Santa Ana today, including the Tongva, Acjachemen, and Luiseño before the Spanish colonization began in the late 1700s. These major groups of Indigenous People in Orange County were thought to originate from the Shoshone.

The Plaza of the Sun is located at 22 Civic Center Plaza in the heart of Santa Ana’s Civic Center between the Santa Ana Public Library and City Hall. Guests will have access to multiple parking garages in Downtown Santa Ana that are walking-distance from the event.

The celebration will include live music, food vendors, exhibitors, and family activities. For more information, click here. You may also call the Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Agency at (714) 571-4200.

La celebración también incluirá vendedores de comida, puestos de recursos, vendedores de mercancías y actividades para toda la familia.

El Día de los Pueblos Indígenas se celebra el segundo lunes de octubre para honrar las historias de las culturas Nativas y reconocer el valor de sus muchas contribuciones hechas a nuestra comunidad a través del conocimiento, el trabajo, la espiritualidad, la tecnología, la ciencia, la filosofía, artes y la profunda contribución cultural que formó sustancialmente el carácter de Santa Ana.

Varias culturas indígenas habitaron en el área que hoy llamamos Santa Ana, incluyendo los Tongva, Acjachemen y Luiseño antes de que comenzara la colonización española a fines del siglo diecisiete. Se pensaba que estos grandes grupos de indígenas del Condado de Orange originaron de los Shoshone.

La Plaza del Sol está ubicada en 22 Civic Center Plaza en el corazón del Centro Cívico de Santa Ana entre la Biblioteca Pública y el Ayuntamiento de Santa Ana. Los invitados tendrán acceso a varios estacionamientos en el Centro de Santa Ana que se encuentran a poca distancia del evento.
