A Holiday Gift Idea for Kids Who like to Read

Puvungna is a story about two young brothers who travel back in time and discover an ancient Indian village along the shores of a Southern California beach and the terrifying secret behind its disappearance over five hundred years ago. You will meet Chinigchinich and the people who called Puvungna their home, and experience how they lived before their land was conquered, their spirituality, and the events that changed a long-forgotten history which took place at the village. Upon their return from the past, the boys must convince their parents and adults of their discovery, which ultimately changes their lives and their community. Puvungna is inspired by the true story of a lost village that was once populated by the indigenous Tongva people. Today, the last remains of the village of Puvungna is located less than a mile from the Pacific Ocean on the campus of present day California State University, Long Beach.
