Ohlone Profiles Project

The Ohlone Profiles Project was created in 2008 to support Ohlone culture in the city of San Francisco. The Ohlone are the indigenous people of the San Francisco Bay, south of the main channel. The largest Ohlone group descends from Ohlone who left  San Francisco when Mission Dolores closed in 1834. Ohlone culture has revived during the last thirty years, but rarely in San Francisco. The Ohlone Profiles Project recognized an opportunity to work with cultural leaders to host a cycle of ceremonies in San Francisco. We are currently in the 3rd year of a 4 year cycle of ceremonies that have succeeded in providing a space for Ohlone to publicly return to San Francisco and showcase their rich cultural history.
