*Ohlone Elders and Youth Speak:

Restoring A California Legacy
Event detail

This exhibition celebrates multi-generational efforts of the Ohlone people to keep their cultures alive and thriving. Compelling photographic images and riveting oral histories dispel the myth that the Ohlone are extinct and illuminate the life experience of people living between two cultures that are often in opposition. The exhibit reflects the challenges of 21st-century Ohlone: protection of burial and other sacred sites, truth-telling regarding the history of California Native people, the significance of the arts and crafts resurgence, and a vision for the future for the Ohlone peoples.

Opening Event with Ohlone dance, song and panel discussion October 12, 2014, Main Library, Koret Auditorium, 1:00 pm

*Funded by Friends of the San Francisco Public Library.
