Native American & Indigenous Heritage

Long Beach City College acknowledges our presence on the traditional ancestral land of the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples. This land remains unceded territory. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory. Long Beach City College honors and respects the Gabrielino/Tongva ancestors and their connection to this land. 

We shake your hand with a good heart. LBCC recognizes that Native American and Indigenous students and the many rich cultures collectively embodied within this umbrella term are an integral part of our community, and we value your unique needs. There are several resources at LBCC and the larger Long Beach community that can support your personal well-being, academic progress, and social life. Below are a few resources you may find helpful.
