Ohlone Indians of California

Chitactac Adams Park (Mutson Ohlone Indian Site)

7335.jpg This is the creek that runs through the site.  It was a Mutsun Ohlones village inhabited for over 3000 years.





There were vendors, and different learning stations set up all over the park.  The public was invited to attend and learn a little bit about the Ohlone people and their ways of life.  I met the tribal chairman and we had a long discussion about their trying to get federal recognition for the tribe.  I presented him with the letter of introduction from the Gwichin and a bag of tobacco from Larry Running Turtle.  I enjoyed the day in discussion with many there that afternoon.

The last picture was of stone mortars that were used to grind acorns, corn and other grains.

    It looks like a great day. Cool that you have a letter of introduction from the other tribe! Easier than having to keep explaining that you do know a thing or two about the indian heritage.

    I liked seeing your lodge on the pictures of the bird center! I hope the eagle has appriciated it as well 😉
    What a bird!
