Because of a history of genocide and cultural erasure, most current Bay Area residents are unaware of the culture of the Chochenyo Ohlone—original peoples of what are now called Alameda and Contra Costa counties. Making Ohlone Visible aims to reclaim this indigenous history, honoring traditions and customs of its original peoples through monuments that will mark the sites of Chochenyo Ohlone villages in Berkeley, Oakland, and Emeryville. The project is fiscally sponsored by California Indian Environmental Alliance.
