Ohlone Day


Last Saturday Marae & I took the girls to Ohlone days. A celebration of the Ohlone people and an exciting field trip for the girls. Smashing acorns, shooting atlatls, dancing, and crafts were
a few things we did to try to connect to the ways of the Ohlone people.


Lily, the featured tree climber, just turned 6 and is very excited about the big things she can do.

this Ohlone was looking mighty pale.

it's a boat! these are mini replicas of the canoe-like boats they made.

rope swinging. the girls insisted on visiting the rope swing at the river in the park.
