The Tongva Taraxat Paxaavxa Conservancy was created to steward lands in Tovaangar, the traditional Tongva region, encompassing the greater Los Angeles basin. The Conservancy has received land back, and is working to create a community center for Indigenous people, maintain cultural practices, have space for traditional Ceremony, work on language revitalization, provide housing for Indigenous elders, and archive community documents.
Taraxat is the Tongva word for Indigenous people in the plural. It is used here in the sense that this conservancy is intended to preserve the people and the culture of the Tongva as well as the land. Paxaavxa is the Tongva word for a piece of land.
