The populations of Asia which were installed in California before the arrival of the Spaniards were rather varied, in the sense that one counted there a hundred different languages. These peoples could be nomadic as well as sedentary. They lived by hunting, fishing and gathering fruits and acorns. Among these indigenous peoples, we highlight that of the Chumashs who would have been estimated at about 8,000 divided Amerindians.

The Chumash are a Native American people who lived mainly along the southern California coast, around the present-day towns of Santa Barbara and Ventura. It also occupied the three islands north of the Channel Islands. Current places that have chumash origins are: Malibu, Point Mugu, Piru, Lake Castaic and Simi Valley. The territory of Salinans extended over the present-day counties of San Luis Obispo, Monterey and possibly San Benito, between the Pacific Ocean and the Salinas River.
