Malcolm Margolin and Friends at Toby’s Feed Barn

July 30, 2022 | 3:00 pm 4:30 pm

Join Malcolm Margolin, Gregg Castro (Salinan-Rumsien/Ramaytush Ohlone), Michelle La Pena (Pit River), Jennifer Bates (Northern Sierra Mewuk), and Theresa Harlan (Tewa/Santo Domingo Pueblo & adopted Coast Miwok) and other special guests to celebrate the publication of Malcolm’s latest book—Deep Hanging Out: Wanderings and Wonderment in Native California.

Writer and publisher Malcolm Margolin has been “deep hanging out”–or immersing himself in a social, informal way–in California’s Indian country since the 1970s. This volume collects thirty articles, introductions, and other pieces he wrote about California’s diverse Indian country (well over one hundred tribes), drawn mainly from the quarterly magazine he cofounded in 1987, News from Native California. He shares with his readers the experiences, knowledge, and cultural renewal that California Indians have generously shared with him, often after years of friendship, from the erection of a ceremonial enclosure in Northern California–built to fall apart within a generation so that the knowledge of how to construct one is always current–to a visit by aboriginal Hawaiians in diplomatic recognition of native Southern Californian tribes. 

Please plan on arriving early so that we can begin promptly at 3:00 PM.
