Your Call 012609 How have native peoples lived in Northern California?

What was Native American life like in Northern California? On the next Your Call, we will have a conversation about Ohlone people, the original inhabitants of the Bay Area. They lived in the central California coastal areas between Big Sur and the Golden Gate of San Francisco Bay for 3000 years. So who were the Ohlone? What happened to them? What can we learn from their way of life? And how can we apply their environmental practices to our daily life? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Thanks so much for this show. It's challenging to try to shoehorn so much into a mere hour. The effort is so deeply appreciated.

The mention of the National Geographic article from the 20's piqued my interest, but I was unable to find anything online about it aside from a reference to the Chronicle article mentioned by the caller. "The Woman Who Remembered Paradise"
by Larry Engelmann, San Francisco Chronicle, July 10, 1988

I'll continue to try to identify the specific NG issue with the original article and will post when I do.
