Malcolm Margolin and Friends, Deep Hanging Out, at the San Francisco Public Library

November 4, 2021 | 6:00 am 7:30 pm

Join Malcolm Margolin, Gregg Castro, Rupa Marya, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Claire Greensfelder and other special guests in a program to celebrate the publication of Malcolm’s latest book—Deep Hanging Out: Wanderings and Wonderment in Native California.

This event guides San Franciscans to recover their city’s deepest and most abiding sense of itself—namely, the knowledge and experience of the Ramaytush Ohlone, the people who have lived on this land for thousands of years. After 250 years of oppression and genocide that robbed them of their land, their rights and much of their culture and rendered their history and presence invisible to the dominant society, the Ramaytush Ohlone have come together as a tribe and are engaging in phenomenal projects to restore the land, the language and the traditions of their ancestors. This program—co-hosted by the California Institute for Community, Art, and Nature, Heyday and other partners (to be announced)—celebrate the survival of the Raymatush peoples and explore opportunities to re-indigenize San Francisco.
