First people of the Bay Area

by Jui-lan Liu

You are cordially invited to go on a journey, lead by Dino Labiste, naturalist for East Bay Regional Park District. Join him on a visit of California's heritage spanning 2,500 years. Utilizing hunting and gathering technology, the Ohlone Peoples had a close physical and psychological bond to the environment. The marshes and foothills were a rich resource for creating tools, acquiring seasonal food and constructing shelters. We'll explore the world of the first people of the Bay Area through stories, artifacts, and replications of the material culture.

Dino is one of the naturalists at Coyote Hills Regional Park. He conducts educational programs on various habitats including marsh, grassland, oak woodland and riparian communities. He also presents cultural history programs on the rich agricultural and ranching heritage of the last century in Alameda County. The archaeological resources of a Tuibun Ohlone village site at the park offer opportunities to inform the public about the culture of the Ohlone Peoples.
