The Muwkekma Ohlone: We are still here!

Teacher Jennifer's note: I live in San Jose, home of the Tamian Muwkekma Ohlone. I encourage you to learn more about the Native Americans in your community!
 
 


"We Are Muwekma Ohlone" is the title of the mural.
They were once recognized but it got taken away back in the late 1920s.
Charlene Nijmeh, the current chairperson, 
she represents the present, 
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

Happy National Native American Heritage Month!

 
 
US Department of the Interior: Happy National Native American Heritage Month!
 
This month we honor the gifts of our ancestors by celebrating Indigenous knowledge, traditions, language, and culture. But at Interior we do that every day.
 
All of our work is done with the leadership of President Biden and an all-of-government approach to ensure Native American, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, and Island communities have a seat at the table. 
 
Native American history IS American history, and it is only by recognizing that history that we can build a future that is equitable and inclusive. Happy National Native American Heritage Month!
