Background
The Charmlee Wilderness Park was originally inhabited by the Chumash people some 10,000 to 13,000 years ago. Between 18,000 to 25,000 Chumash people inhabited what is now Southern California from Malibu Canyon to San Luis Obispo and then inland from the coast to the edges of the San Joaquin Valley. The Chumash people spent their time hunting, fishing and gathering various resources in the surrounding area.
