Ohlone Educational Program
This November, in honor of Native American Heritage Month, we're joining San Mateo Public Libraries in presenting a variety of Ohlone-themed activities. San Mateo County Parks will lead participants in the following activities:
The Ohlone used grinding stones to prepare food for eating. Get a chance to grind grains and see a grinding rock that was discovered in one of our parks.
The Ohlone have lived here for thousands of years and discovered many uses for many different plants and animals. Test your knowledge with sorting what the Ohlone used certain plants for.
The Ohlone played many different games just like us! Learn how to play the Stave Game and make a set of staves to bring home!
The Ohlone relied heavily on fiber in their everyday lives whether it was for creating nets or rope or baskets or clothes or their shelters. Get a chance to braid fibers together to create a memorable keepsake.
