The Muwekma Ohlone Tribe of the San Francisco Bay Region


Worldwide Walls: POW! WOW! San Jose 2021 AIR: We Are Muwekma Ohlone 
(clip)

"We Are Muwekma Ohlone" is the title of the mural.

Charlene Nijmeh, the current chairperson,

and she's doing what she can to help get the tribe 
federally reinstated as a sovereign nation as a Muwekma Ohlone, 
an American Indian tribe recognized by the United States.
Ask the question.
Find out why you didn't know anything about the Ohlone people before.
Just learn.
I'm glad I painted this just to be like a talking point, 
like a starting point to to talk about that.
--Alfonso Salazar 

US Citizenship Podcast gratefully acknowledges Muwekma Ohlone people on whose ancestral land we reside, as well as the diverse Native communities who make their home here today.
