Join former Ramona Pageant archivist, historian and author Phil Brigandi to learn about realities, misconceptions, and marketing techniques connecting the beloved Ramona story to Rancho Camulos, when Brigandi presents Charles Lummis and Rancho Camulos on Tuesday, October 12 at 1:30 p.m. at the Museum of Ventura County’s Pavilion. Admission is $5 for the general public and free for museum members. Attendance includes admission to all galleries. To RSVP, please call 805-653-0323 x 315.

Brigandi, who has written three books about the Ramona Pageant and lectured extensively about the 1884 book and story, will discuss the Ramona myth and California booster Charles Lummis, who was among those effectively promoting Ventura County’s Rancho Camulos as “The Home of Ramona.”

Author Helen Hunt Jackson hoped her popular novel Ramona would inspire a public outcry for government reform in the treatment of American Indians. However, her intended message took a back seat to readers’ fascination with the book’s romantic depiction of 1850s California. After the book’s publication, railroad competition touched off Southern California’s largest real estate boom, and an accompanying influx of tourists came looking for the locations depicted in the book. Ventura County’s Rancho Camulos was one among many claiming to have inspired the rancho in the fictional story.

The Museum of Ventura County is located at 100 East Main Street in Ventura. Go to www.venturamuseum.org for more information.

THOUSAND OAKS, CA. - A professor will discuss the history of local braceros at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 13, at California Lutheran University.

José M. Alamillo, an associate professor and coordinator of the Chicano/a studies program at California State University, Channel Islands, will present “The Braceros of Ventura County” in the Roth Nelson Room as part of the CLU Center for Equality and Justice Lecture Series.

The U.S. and Mexican governments instituted the bracero program, which brought Mexican farm laborers to the U.S., in 1942 and officially ended it in 1964. Of the 5 million braceros imported to the U.S., at least 20 percent were contracted to work in Ventura County and about 20 bracero camps were located throughout the county.

Alamillo, who was born in Mexico and grew up in Ventura County, worked with his students to chronicle the lives of 70 county braceros for an exhibit currently on display at CSUCI. He has researched labor, immigration, race, gender and sports. Alamillo is the author of “Making Lemonade out of Lemons: Mexican American Labor and Leisure in a California Town, 1900-1960” and is currently working on a book about transnational sports between Southern California and Mexico.

The Roth Nelson Room is located on Mountclef Boulevard between Olsen Road and Memorial Parkway.

Mark Plotkin to discuss Shamanic healing

Thousand Oaks, CA - A man hailed by Time magazine as an environmental “Hero for the Planet” will discuss the untapped potential for Shamanic healing in U.S. healthcare at California Lutheran University.

Mark Plotkin, Ph.D., will present “Shamanic Medicine, the Mind-Body Connection, and the Future of Healthcare: An Amazonian Perspective” at 10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 11, in Samuelson Chapel. CLU’s Artists and Speakers Committee is presenting the free lecture.

Plotkin asserts that Shamanic medicine offers new insights into everything from diagnoses to cures in ways we are just beginning to appreciate. But mainstays of Shamanic healing such as herbal solutions and spiritual healing are missing from the current healthcare debate.

The renowned ethnobotanist has firsthand knowledge of the healing potential harbored by the Amazon rain forests – through their cultures and the plants and animals their inhabitants know and use.

For much of the past 20 years, Plotkin has worked with and learned from the ancient shamans in the rain forests of Central and South America, where he has acquired knowledge of healing plants and shaman traditions.

One-man show makes plays instantly accessible
Tim Mooney
Tim Mooney

THOUSAND OAKS, CA - A one-man show that makes the works of 17th-century French playwright Molière instantly accessible through rhyming verse, audience participation and amazing energy will be presented at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 4, at California Lutheran University.

The free performance of Tim Mooney’s “Molière than Thou” will be held in the Preus-Brandt Forum on the Thousand Oaks campus.

In his seven years of touring with “Molière than Thou,” Mooney has introduced more than 50,000 people to the playwright.

His one-man show is an anthology of Mooney’s own translated scenes from Molière's classic, but still hilarious, witty and relevant comedies. In typical 17th-century curled wigs and costume, Mooney changes both character and personality by adding a tie or shedding a jacket. He gives the setting and theme of each selected play before assuming its principal role.

“Molière than Thou” imagines the Molière of 1671, scratching out a living as only he might, performing the funniest roles in his plays rewritten in rhymed iambic pentameter by Mooney. Molière explored farce with “The Precious Young Maidens” and “The Imaginary Cuckold,” challenged his audiences with the textured modern characterizations of “The School for Wives,” and created an uproar with the searing social commentary of “Tartuffe,” “Don Juan” and “The Misanthrope.” He finished out his career taking aim at doctors in “The Doctor in Spite of Himself,” lawyers in “The Schemings of Scapin” and middle class poseurs in “The Bourgeois Gentleman.” He died one of the most ironic deaths of all time, collapsing amid the finale of “The Imaginary Invalid” and then dying in bed without a priest or doctor willing to attend to him just as he had depicted it on the stage hours before.

Mooney is the author of 16 celebrated new versions of the plays of Molière and also composed a self-help book on acting, “Acting at the Speed of Life.”

Preus-Brandt Forum is located south of Olsen Road between Campus Drive and Mountclef Boulevard.

CLU’s Artists and Speakers Committee is sponsoring the event. For information, contact Karen Renick at renick@callutheran.edu.

 
Several local musical groups will perform

THOUSAND OAKS, CA. – A Chinese Moon Festival Celebration Concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2, in Samuelson Chapel at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks.

Musicians will present a free evening of traditional Chinese and Western music. Featured local groups are the Pacific Pearl Symphony Orchestra, Yang Sheng Choir, Dancing String Chamber and Thousand Oaks Chinese Folk Ensemble. Special guest vocalist Li Zhang, who recently moved from Beijing, will also perform.

The Chinese Moon Festival, also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, is an important holiday in the Chinese culture that has been celebrated for thousands of years. Chinese people believe that on that day the moon is the roundest and brightest, signaling a time of completeness and abundance. It is a celebration of the harvest season and a day of family reunions, much like Thanksgiving in the United States. Traditionally, family and friends get together to admire the moon and eat moon cakes. The legend associated with the festival recounts the story of a beautiful woman named Chang E who flew to the moon and has lived there ever since.

The doors will open at 7 p.m. Samuelson Chapel is located south of Olsen Road near Campus Drive.

CLU's Department of Languages and Cultures and Office of Multicultural Programs and International Student Services, as well as the Pacific Pearl Music Association, are presenting the concert. For more information, contact Tim Proffitt at ppmamusic@gmail.com or (805) 231-5409.

THOUSAND OAKS, CA. – California Lutheran University will present an award-winning documentary on the Liberian women who worked to bring down a dictator at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 29, in Lundring Events Center.

The free showing of “Pray the Devil Back to Hell” is part of the Reel Justice Film Series sponsored by CLU’s Center for Equality and Justice.

Emmy-winning and Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Gini Reticker directed the documentary. The film premiered at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival where it won Best Documentary Feature, and has gone on to win a number of other awards.

The Liberian women from the Mass Action Campaign for Peace received both a John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage award and Gruber Women’s Rights Prize.
