About the Exhibition

What makes Griffith Park special to you? For many Angelinos, the name evokes a panorama of memories—from picnics, hikes, horses, and softball games to the zoo, observatory, trains, and, of course, the Autry.

But how much do you really know about Griffith Park? How did it come to be, and what are its best-kept secrets? Join us as we explore stories about Griffith Park, a landscape that we honor as Tongva/Gabrielino land and a public park for Los Angeles. 

Land Acknowledgment

The Autry Museum of American West acknowledges the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples as the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar (the Los Angeles basin and So. Channel Islands). We recognize that the Autry Museum and its campuses are located on the traditional lands of Gabrielino/Tongva peoples and we pay our respects to the Honuukvetam (Ancestors), ‘Ahiihirom (Elders) and ‘Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present and emerging.
