Information from: “Šmuwič Language School ” . Wishtoyo Chumash Foundation
"With the Opening of the Šmuwič Language School in the Spring of 2010 at Wishtoyo’s Chumash Village, Chumash Elders Johnny Moreno and Deborah Sanchez have dedicated their lives to “reawakening our memory” by keeping the sounds of the Šmuwič language present. Under their leadership and guidance current and future generations of Chumash will learn the Šmuwič/Barbareño language. The primary goal of Wishtoyo's Šmuwič Language School is to provide an avenue of practice and preservation of the Šmuwič language through songs and stories that can be shared with all Chumash tribal groups."
