Jews On Ohlone Land Monthly Workshop/Meeting

Wednesday, December 11, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Jews On Ohlone Land Monthly Workshop/Meeting

Jews on Ohlone Land is organizing to maximize Jewish participation in the Shuumi Land Tax throughout the East Bay. The heart of this project is training and supporting people to offer an interactive workshop that addresses the indigenous history of the East Bay, through the teachings of indigenous leaders, and that explores how we as Jews can live in right relationship to this land, its ancestors, and the indigenous people and communities who live here now.

The Shuumi Land Tax is a voluntary annual financial contribution that non-Indigenous people living on traditional Chochenyo and Karkin Ohlone territory make to support the critical work of the Sogorea Te Land Trust. The Shuumi Land Tax directly supports Sogorea Te’s work to acquire and preserve land, establish a cemetery to reinter stolen Ohlone ancestral remains and build urban gardens, community centers, and sacred arbors so current and future generations of Indigenous people can thrive in the Bay Area. Learn more at sogoreate-landtrust.com.

Founded in March 2019 by Ariel Luckey and Dev Noily, Jews on Ohlone Land is now a robust and growing crew of amazing people, bringing a wealth of teachings and perspectives to our shared work. Our project is designed so that anyone can join anytime and we can continue to build with ongoing participants. If you have not come to a session before, please join us at 6:30pm.
