A friend and her son found a set of notes he had made about Pasadena history for a school project years ago and lent them to me. I’m blogging excerpts from them bit by bit with their permission. This post is the second in this series, which is not always in chronological order. To see all the posts in this series, click here: Pasadena History Notes.
The Hahamogna — sometimes also spelled Hahamonga — lived in this area and were colonized by the Spanish. The City of Pasadena website has a little bit of information about the Hahamogna, as does the top of this Altadena History web page. Wild Food of the Gabrielino has drawings and information about the foods the Hahamogna ate.
