Pukúu is derived from the Fernandeño Tataviam language meaning one. Pukúu’s Cultural Community Services provides resources for American Indians living in Los Angeles County to focus on cultural arts and expression, environmental sustainability, intergenerational leadership, strengthening leadership qualities of the American Indian community and its youth. For instance, Pukúu offers temporary aid to low-income American Indian families and community members in financial emergencies and works to ensure that American Indian youth have the opportunity to pursue higher education.
