TDear friends, supporters, and fellow advocates,

I am thrilled to share an exciting collaboration that has been in the works for some time now. As an Indigenous consultant and cultural ambassador, I have always been passionate about raising awareness of the rich history and culture of the Bay Area’s Indigenous peoples. Today, I am proud to announce a partnership with the Exploratorium and the Association of Ramaytush Ohlone People that brings this passion to life in a remarkable way.

Consulting on the Exploratorium’s Land Acknowledgment

July 1st 2021 Exploratorium ReOpening Day –

One of the cornerstones of this collaboration was consulting on the Exploratorium’s land acknowledgment. It has been a privilege to work closely with the team at the Exploratorium to ensure that their acknowledgment of the traditional lands of the Ramaytush Ohlone people is respectful, accurate, and deeply meaningful. This acknowledgment is a small but significant step toward recognizing the Indigenous presence on this land.

“Shellmounds of the Bay” Poem Feature

I am also incredibly honored to announce that my poem, “Shellmounds of the Bay,” has been featured on the Exploratorium’s website and is part of their Observatory Exhibit. This poem is a reflection of the deep connection I feel to the land, the history, and the people who have called this region home for countless generations.

You can explore my poem and learn more about the significance of shellmounds in the Bay Area’s Indigenous history by visiting the following link: Buried History: Shellmounds of the Bay.

This collaboration is a testament to the power of partnerships and the importance of acknowledging and celebrating the Indigenous history that often remains hidden beneath the surface. It is my hope that this project will not only educate and inspire but also foster greater respect and understanding for the Ramaytush Ohlone people and all Indigenous communities in the Bay Area.

I invite you to explore the resources provided by the Exploratorium and join me in this journey of discovery. Together, we can ensure that the stories and legacies of the Indigenous peoples of the Bay Area are not forgotten but celebrated for generations to come.

Thank you for your continued support, and please share this exciting collaboration with your friends and networks to help us amplify these important voices.
