Ohlone Day at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park
Saturday, September 12, 2015 from 10 am to 4 pm

Event features hands-on experiences to relate Ohlone cultural, social, and every-day life.

Celebrate the Ohlone People of the past with those of the present at Ohlone Day on Saturday, September 12, from 10am to 4pm at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. You will see traditional dancers and Ohlone demonstrators will share traditional basketry, songs, stories, tools, musical instruments, language and history. During this family-friendly event, visitors can throw an atlatl, play Ohlone games and find out how rocks cook meals and bay trees cure headaches as Ohlone people share traditional basketry, songs and musical instruments, stories, dances, tools, language, and history.

For thousands of years, the native tribes we now collectively call the Ohlone thrived in this abundant region. They had plentiful sources of food and enjoyed a life rich in culture. Descendants of the Ohlone people present this event each year so that visitors make connections to Ohlone culture in a meaningful way.

The event takes place in the group picnic area, one of the largest riparian forests along the San Lorenzo River. The park is also known for its old-growth redwood forest along a .8 mile trail.

All activities are free; day-use parking fee is $10.

The main entrance to Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is located off of Highway 9 in Felton at 101 Big Trees Park Road.
