Pioneer Portrayals

The California Pioneer Heritage Foundation supports a large number of reenactors that portray pioneers and tell stories that teach, often in the first person, those interested to learn. You’ll often hear this referred to as “living history.” This section of the website is intended for those involved or interested in living history.

See the sub menu options to the left for information and resources about living history pioneer potrayals, including Activities, Activity Instructions, First Person Presentations, Group Presentations, Preface, Duties Description, and pioneer potrayal groups such as the Mormon Pioneer Band, Sierra Nevada Mormon Pioneers.
