Here and Now
A film premier and discussion about partnerships between Native Americans and land conservation organizations in the Bay Area
Every inch of what is now the Bay Area was once Native American land. For thousands of years the Native people stewarded the land such that European settlers described it as a ‘tended garden.’ Today Native Americans live in the Bay Area relearning and applying the ancestors’ knowledge about the plants, animals, and elements. In large part this is possible because of unique partnerships with land conservation organizations of various kinds.
Join us for our Fall Gathering to watch the premier of a short film that tells the story of four innovative partnerships between Native Americans and land conservation organizations. We travel to mountain tops, valleys, and the coast to hear from local tribes, a working farm, a local land trust, an open space district, and a national land trust. The film will open your eyes and change the way you look at the inches and acres of land we are working to protect and steward.
The Fall Gathering will be held unch will be served at 12pm. The film was produced by the Bay Area Open Space Council with support from The Christensen Fund, Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District, and The Trust for Public Land.in the Goldman Theater at the David Brower Center in downtown Berkeley. We will watch the film and engage in a Q&A with the filmmakers and film’s participants about what makes their partnerships work. L
