Customs and Traditions of Ohlone Natives in the Bay Area | SF History Night | Pacific Heights
Ruth Orta and her daughter, Ramona Garibay, are descendants of the Ohlone/Bay Miwok native people of the San Francisco Bay Area, hunter-gatherers who lived here for thousands of years before the Spanish missionaries arrived.
Ruth and Mona will share stories of their heritage and customs and explain how they are working to preserve traditional Ohlone ways. They will discuss what daily life was like for male and female residents of a typical Ohlone village, including building dwellings from tule and willow branches, making brushes out of soaproot, and gathering and grinding acorns to make soup.
