Three tribes dominated the area prior to western colonization. They were the Tongva, the Tataviam and the Chumash. The Tongva lived across the area while the Tataviam dominated the Northern part of the Valley and the Chumash were mostly found in the East. These three tribes had lived in the area for more than 8000 years and formed an advanced civilization that hunted, traded and had agricultural skills.
The area was a significant contributor to the state's agricultural income. With temperate weather and rich soil, the original Indian tribes and the eventual European settlers found that farming was a natural activity of the area. However, as the weather changed over the centuries and became more arid, it became necessary to adapt. Eventually farming dry wheat also took hold in that area and contributed to the success.
A significant part of the San Fernando Valley history is lynched on the building of the Aqueduct and on the availability of water. In a landmark case the courts ruled that Los Angeles had rights to all the surface water in the Valley, even the ones that were outside the city limits. This gave Los Angeles a significant access to this important resource, especially when the surrounding areas were involved in agriculture. However one of the stipulations of the ruling cited that the water could not be sold or given to those outside the city limits. This prompted the surrounding cities to vote on being annexed by Los Angeles, and were approved. Almost overnight, Los Angeles grew significantly.
