To celebrate Native American Heritage Month, the American Indian Cultural District (AICD) will partner with SF Heritage to host a cross-generational panel of American Indian leaders and activists. Featuring SF Heritage’s November artist-in-residence Dr. LaNada War Jack, a Shoshone Bannock elder, author, and activist and one of the original occupants of Alcatraz, as well as Gregg Castro from the Association of Ramyatush Ohlone and Mytia Zavala of the American Indian Film Institute, the panel will discuss continuing efforts to establish a cultural center on Alcatraz, the next steps for the Ramaytush Ohlone as the original peoples of San Francisco, and —now in its 47th year — the legacy of the American Indian Film Festival. Join us in recognizing, honoring, and celebrating the American Indian legacy, culture, people, and contributions in San Francisco.
**All proceeds from this program will benefit our partner organizations and their American Indian cultural preservation work in San Francisco
