Juanita Centeno Gallery


Juanita Centeno Memorial Gallery Named for a prominent member of the Chumash community, this gallery is used for temporary and traveling exhibits of both local and regional origin. Although Juanita Ochoa Centeno was born in Lompoc in 1918, she moved to the Santa Ynez Reservation when she was still very young.

It was there that she learned of the “Chumash Way”. As an adult, Juanita passed on her knowledge to thousands of others interested in learning about the Chumash way of life. Respected by Chumash and archaeologists alike, Juanita was uniquely able to balance the need to honor her cultural roots with the archaeologist’s quest for knowledge.
