On Ohlone Land

Wednesday, March 20, 2019, 7-9 p.m. | Dimond Library, Oakland

Thank you to those of you who made it out to our March community talk. On Ohlone Land was the highest attended FOSC meeting in history! We are incredibly grateful to our speakers Corrina and Deja Gould for sharing their stories and passion. 

Corrina mentioned the Shuumi Land Tax, which "directly supports the Sogorea Te Land Trust’s work to acquire and preserve land, establish a cemetery to reinter stolen Ohlone ancestral remains and build a community center and round house so current and future generations of Indigenous people can thrive in the Bay Area." Please consider contributing. Half of the donations from last night will also be contributed to the Shuumi Land Tax.​​

Event Description:

Join us for a presentation from Indian People Organizing for Change (IPOC)* to learn about Ohlone history and how their members created the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust, the first urban indigenous women-led land trust in the country that is working to regain access to their land and preserve their traditions and cultural heritage. 

This event, like all of our bi-monthly community meetings, is free and open to the public.

*Indian People Organizing for Change (IPOC) is a community-based organization in the San Francisco Bay Area. Its members, including Ohlone tribal members and conservation activists, work together in order to accomplish social and environmental justice within the Bay Area American Indian community.
