“Indigenous Voices: De-Colonizing Peralta Hacienda”

To lift up Ohlone language restoration, culture and identity, sculptures will be created in Peralta Hacienda that represent the words for Sun (Gismen), Moon (Kormey) and Water (Sii), in Chochenyo. These sculptures will be bordered by sedge, ferns and willow plantings in the creek area to later harvest for Ohlone basketry. Over two years leading up to the unveiling of the art works, Calpulli Coatlicue and Friends of Negro Spirituals will hold eleven cultural festivals to engage community participation in Ohlone language revival, foodways, craft and storytelling.
