FUESD Parents and Guardians,

November is Native American Heritage Month. We are excited to celebrate the history of those who came before us and their descendants continuing their rich heritage. We honor the strength and resolve of the indigenous community as we look to learn more about Fallbrook’s native people.

This page highlights the indigenous people of Fallbrook, along with sharing student-centered videos showcasing the rich history of Native Americans, their suffering and resilience during the time of American Settlement, and their unique culture as seen through music, food, and art.
