Indian Canyon Storytelling

$1,320 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 12 people in 18 months

Years ago many roamed the land, throughout the course of time numbers have dwindled. As a result of that, our culture - our ways, are fading (though ever resiliant).  

During the 17 and 1800’s Indian Canyon served as a safe haven for the local indigenous peoples who were being abducted/recruited/bribed/transported to the Missions with the Spaniards. The local Ohlone peoples knew the terrain and were able to traverse the territory into the secluded valley of Indian Canyon. Since then Indian Canyon has remained a safe haven, currently Ann-Marie Sayers and her daughter have opened up the Canyon for all Indigenous Peoples in need of land for ceremony.

Annually we gather together, as our elders and wisdom keepers share stories. The spoken relation and preservation, from one generation to the next, of a people's cultural history and ancestry, often by means of storytelling.

2017, has proven to be a challenging year, without our annual grant, we need support of the community.
The 21st Annual Indian Canyon Storytelling and Indigenous gathering will happen with your help and support.
