Tales From The Pictures We Saved – Episode 5: Preserving Memories and Native American Heritage

tales from the pictures we savedWelcome to this week’s episode of Tales From the Pictures We Saved. 

 

We’ve spent the past 26 years helping our customers preserve tens of millions of happy memories, milestones, achievements and events—all of which have incredible stories behind each and every photo.

 

And now we’re eager to share these stories with you.

 

In this week’s episode one ScanMyPhotos customer uses photo scanning to preserve both family memories and her Native American heritage.

 

Preview: Before weekenders casually explored the ocean-side vistas of Santa Barbara and well before the Pacific Coast Highway carved its way through the Pacific Ocean’s shore, the Chumash Native Americans called the greater areas of Los Angeles, Ventura, San Luis Obispo, and Santa Barbara counties home.

 

Once a thriving population of between 15,000 and 18,500 natives, the number of Chumash today is in the 2,000-5,000 range. It’s more likely you will hear of those who are of Chumash descent and even those numbers are beginning to dwindle. As such, preservation is key for the Chumash and their descendants. This is just one of the many reasons why it was so important for ScanMyPhotos customer Irene Stonecipher to scan her precious photos.
