Against All Odds: Native Californian Stories of Endurance & Continuance 

Have you ever wondered what happened to the first people of the place now known as Hayward and beyond?
The C. E. Smith Museum invites you to join Jalquin/Saclan Ohlone/Bay Miwok elder Ruth Orta and her five-generation, 60+ member extended family as they share details of their tribal, family, and ancestral history. Despite more than two centuries of upheaval, suffering, and change since the colonization of their homelands, against all odds the region’s first people continue to bring their cultures forward into the future while living as modern Americans.

The exhibition runs through December 6, 2018 in the Concord Campus Library, Room 132. Visit University Libraries website for hours. Phone 925-602-6725 for more information.

Free Admission and open to the public.
