Round Mountain
hukisunupahani lo’ka’aliyaš’isatʰwiwa
we restore the path to sathwiwa) Project

CSU Channel Islands invited students, alumni, faculty and staff to roll up their sleeves and participate in Round Mountain/hukisunupahani lo’ka’aliyaš ’isatʰwiwa (we restore the path to sathwiwa) Project on Saturday, September 21, 2019 to restore the trail to the top of Round Mountain.

Located on the CSUCI campus, Round Mountain, sathwiwa, is sacred to the Chumash people, where ceremonies were conducted in the past and will be again. The first step to restoring this place of cultural significance is to create a trail to the top. The existing route, a former road, was in poor condition and covered with brush.
