The Chumash Maritime Association has continued the ancient maritime tradition of the Chumash people by the building, care taking, and crewing of our Tomol, the ‘Elye’wun.  We help to bring our traditional culture forward into contemporary times.  It is the Chumash community who will tell our stories and define who we are. The Chumash Maritime Association has a history of good partnerships and collaborations with various bands, groups, agencies, organizations, and individuals in various cultural and educational projects relating to our maritime culture.
