Event Details

Three leaders of traditional Bay Area territories will speak from the heart about historical and contemporary events that have left them landless and without federal recognition, the impact of this situation on their people, the work they are doing to reclaim culture and re-assert their claim to these lands, and why Indigenous presence matters as San Francisco emerges as one of the wealthiest cities on the planet and a hub for tech corporations and real estate speculation. Moderated by Julian Brave NoiseCat (Canin Lake Band Tsq’escen)

With Corrina Gould (Confederated Villages of Lisjan), Ruth Orta (Ohlone/Bay Miwok/Plains Miwok) and Jonathan Cordero (Ramaytush Ohlone)

Co-presentation with the Alcatraz Canoe Journey, San Francisco Public Library, and SFMOMA, as part of a four-part, city-wide series commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Occupation.
