|Over the past year, Laguna Beach Branch Library Manager Jon Gilliom and the OC Stories Committee have met with, interviewed and filmed members of the Juaneño Band of Mission Indians, Acjachemen Nation community of San Juan Capistrano.|
The Juaneño Band of Mission Indians, Acjachemen Nation are the original inhabitants of the lands that ultimately became the County of Orange, as well as parts of San Diego, Los Angeles, and Riverside Counties. The Tribe provided the original manpower for the construction of some of the earliest key landmarks in Orange County, including Mission San Juan Capistrano.
