mak-‘amham/Café Ohlone

At mak-‘amham, we are working toward a full revival of Ohlone Indian food traditions as a part of a larger, ongoing cultural restoration that empowers Ohlone people to decolonize ourselves of layers of forcibly imposed identity and return to an identity that is aligned with that of our ancestors. Our food is full of power, and our food dispels stereotypes. Our food connects us to those we love and to our land, which we also love. By eating, cherishing and respecting these old foods and fully embracing our Ohlone culture, we honor our identities and the people we come from.
