Descendants of the Juaneno branch of the Mission Indians, including Chief Lobo, hike past the “Bell Tower” marker at the center of what would become the UCI campus, on the original 1,000 acres donated to The Regents by the Irvine Company. Clarence Lobo, elected chief of the Juaneno, wrote this about the plans for the UCI campus on this land: “Our children shall not know the experience of roaming over these rolling hills and listening to the wild birds as they talk to nature. Here now will be a fountain of knowledge where the cream of our youth shall drink from the rivers of learning…. The future belongs to our youth. Our footprints upon the sands of time shall be history to them.”
