Ohlone & Miwok, History, Present and Future
March 17, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm| $10 – $50
This event is the first in a series, Addressing Racism in our Community, organized by the Diablo For Peace committee of the Mt. Diablo Peace and Justice Center, Acorn.Wiki, the Racial Justice Committee of the Mt. Diablo Unitarian Universalist Church and financially sponsored with a grant from the Walnut Creek Civic Pride Foundation.
This dynamic discussion panel includes four educators hailing from tribes in the area, each an expert in their field. They include: Corinna Gould (Chochenyo and Karkin Ohlone); Gregg Castro (Salinan/Rumsien Ohlone), Kanyon Sayers-Roods (Mutsun Ohlone and Chumash), and Sky Road Webb (Coast Miwok).
We will learn about Mount Diablo itself and its cultural and historical significance to both the Ohlone and Miwok, current efforts to address and redesign public school curricula, and what it means to be an ally to Ohlone and Miwok and other native groups of California and the world.
After the panel, Corrina Gould will teach us about Shellmounds and what we the residents of Ohlone lands can do to support its first peoples and their fight to protect their ancient sacred sites.
