Ohlone Elders and Youth Speak: Restoring a California Legacy. 734 Marin St, Vallejo, CA 94590
An exploration of the efforts of three generations of Ohlone people committed to keeping their cultures alive and thriving. Documented through contemporary photographic images and oral histories the exhibition chronicles the on-going cultural revitalization process taking place within Ohlone communities. It speaks to their struggle as landless peoples to keep ceremony, to protect their burial and other sacred sites, to ensure an accurate portrayal of their history and to the resurgence of their arts and language. It speaks to their vision of the future. Join us! There will be several events taking place during this exhibition. The opening reception, dance, song, panel discussion, film showings, art displays (McCree-Goudeau Gallery) and an Ohlone language revitalization workshop. We will be updating this event page as we progress with dates, times, and confirmations. Thank you for your patience. We hope to see you at the exhibit!
