Members of the Gabrielino-Tongva Indian tribe joined state Sen. Tom Hayden (D-Los Angeles) Wednesday at a Westside high school to celebrate passage of a bill that helps preserve natural springs on campus that are of tribal importance. Clear spring water surfaces in a dozen locations on the campus of University High School, which is built on the site of an ancient Indian village, said Angie Dorame Behrns, president of the Springs Foundation.

Ask Anthony Morales why he wants the federal government to recognize the Gabrielino Indians, and the tribal chairman speaks of social justice. Granting sovereign status to the Gabrielino-Tongva Nation would acknowledge that perhaps as many as 2,000 residents of Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura counties are descended from natives of the L.A. Basin, whose lands once stretched from the Channel Islands to Laguna Beach to the San Gabriel Mountains.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge rejected on Monday a lawsuit filed by a faction of a landless San Gabriel Valley tribe that wants to build a casino against the wishes of another faction that has no interest in gambling. After a year of legal squabbling, Judge Soussan Bruguera determined that the court lacked jurisdiction over the case. The ruling brought applause from a dozen members of the Gabrielino-Tongva tribe who had been driven nearly into bankruptcy by the lawsuit.

The 250-acre flood-control area around Devils Gate Dam has been christened Hahamongna Watershed Park. The area is being returned largely to its natural state in the $40-million Devils Gate Multi-Use Project. The name was suggested by project board member Vera Rocha, a leader of the Gabrieleno Indians.

The cross at Cahuenga Pass, criticized in a March 27 letter to The Times, was erected at the site of the Pilgrimage Theater (now called the John Anson Ford Theater) some 60 years ago. The Pilgrimage was the site for Passion Play presentations. In the 60 years that have passed since the cross first appeared, it has passed from being a symbol of Los Angeles' turn of-the-century dominant Midwestern Protestant ethos and has become a cultural landmark, a link to our past--one of the few still remaining to us who respect the historical Los Angeles where it still hangs on. Los Angeles was indeed founded and settled and repopulated throughout its history by a rich ethnic mix of peoples: Gabrieleno Indians, Spanish, Mexican, Chinese, Yankee, Japanese, Southern Black, Armenian, Korean . . . the list goes on. Many of those peoples left their mark.

Gov. George Deukmejian signed a bill Friday appropriating $195,000 to display Indian artifacts unearthed in the discovery of the "Lost Village of Encino." The artifacts--pottery, stone tools, arrowheads, beads and bones--will be displayed on the second floor of the Garnier House in Los Encinos State Park. They were discovered during construction of an office building at the southeast corner of Ventura Boulevard and Balboa Boulevard, across the street from the park.

There will be a few requisite speeches and a celebratory cake. Then the metal gate will swing open to what all gathered can already see: an expanse of brownish-green hills in a wide canyon carved 18 million years ago by ocean currents. The modest ceremony this coming Friday will mark the opening of the 3,400-acre Aliso and Wood Canyons Regional Park, created two years ago as part of an agreement between Orange County and Mission Viejo Co.
