What are Ohlone people currently working on, and how can I get involved?

Ohlone tribal members are still here. And they are part of a thriving San Francisco Bay Area community working hard on issues of critical importance to their families, tribal groups, and the broader community, such as cultural resource management work, language revitalization, land rematriation, and appealing for restoration of federal recognition. Below, we feature some of the initiatives and projects led by our collaborators in the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe and the Ohlone Indian Tribe. Because Santa Clara University is involved in community work across the Bay Area and beyond, we also include information about Ohlone people living and working in other parts of the region.
