Gathering Tribes is honored to present Chumash stone carver, Ted Garcia. Ted is a Native American artist and the Chief of his band of the Chumash Tribe from the San Fernando Valley in California. He is a leader of numerous Native cultural events, which include traditional songs, storytelling and stone carving.
He studied Chumash soapstone artifacts to understand the ancient culture’s subjects and style. Ted’s carvings draw from the spirit within the locally gathered soapstone that carries the spirit of the land where Ted’s ancestors built the thriving and complex Chumash society over countless generations.
As president of the Board of Directors for the Satwiwa Native American Culture Center, he was Featured in Discovery Channel’s National Parks Show. Known for his wisdom, Ted is the spiritual advisor for the Hart of the West Powwow in Newhall, California and has also served on the Board of Directors at the Chumash Interpretive Center in Thousand Oaks, California.
He has presented his stone carvings at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles and has twice been awarded an Artist in Residence grant from the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. He is also the recipient of two Los Angeles Treasures Award from the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department.
