Economy, Spirituality, and Culture
This session will focus on interesting aspects of what we know about historic Indigenous culture, society, economy and spirituality. Participants will hear about examples of trade networks that existed, taking products made and collected by Bay Area communities far and wide. They'll also learn about aspects of village life, spirituality, and sacred relationships with our local landscape. We'll also share some resources for how you can learn and support contemporary Indigenous communities in our area. 

Help us protect open space on the Peninsula and in the South Bay for the benefit of all.
