A presentation on the culture, history, and traditions of the Ramaytush Ohlone people, and practical ways to acknowledge and support them, followed by Q&A, by Gregg Castro. Gregg [t’rowt’raahl Salinan/rumsien-ramaytush Ohlone], is the Culture Director of The Association of Raymatush Ohlone, and has been involved in preservation of his cultural heritage for nearly three decades, for both his late Mother’s rumsien Ohlone heritage, and on his late Father’s side, serving two terms as Tribal Chair of the ‘Salinan Nation Tribal Council’ and currently the non-profit organization, Salinan T’rowt’raahl. As Native peoples reach out for assistance, the goal should not be simply to help but to change. As Lilla Watson shares, “If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”
