The Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History is proud to premiere The Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island, a new documentary by filmmaker Paul Goldsmith. This film, inspired by the acclaimed novel by Scott O’Dell, Island of the Blue Dolphins, is based on the true story of Juana Maria, the name given to a Native American woman who was left alone for 18 years on San Nicolas Island during the 19th century.
After the screening, engage in a discussion with an expert panel that includes an archaeologist, scientist, historian, and Chumash elder about the film and book.

Presented in partnership with the Santa Barbara County Archaeological Society.
