The Exploratorium is your playground after dark! Wander the galleries, sip a cocktail, and let a DJ from Hip Hop for Change set the vibe. Tonight, join Ohlone writer and activist Gregg Castro for a conversation about the relationship Indigenous communities have with their homelands, and what caring for those landscapes means.
Conservations About Landscape explores the issues that shape contemporary landscapes.
More Than Dirt: Landscape Is Homeland
With Gregg Castro
Join writer and activist Gregg Castro to explore the ancient and complex bonds that Indigenous communities have with the land that gave birth to them. Oral narratives often explain that these communities are not just from a land, but of a land: their very bodies and existence are made of the materials of their homes, be it soil, plants, tree branches, and more. For modern Indigenous communities, this relationship continues to power the sacred responsibility to take care of the land and all that lives on it.
Gregg Castro (T’rowt’raahl Salinan/Rumsen and Ramaytush Ohlone) is a 2021 Exploratorium Osher Fellow and a writer and activist within the California Indigenous community on issues of cultural preservation, protection, education, and traditional practices.
Additional speakers to be announced.
Food and drinks will be available to purchase and enjoy in our Seaglass Restaurant and additional bar location during After Dark. Please note that there is no drinking or eating allowed elsewhere in the museum at this time.
Cost: After Dark 18+: USD 19.95
