How the Hummingbird Got Fire

Mount Umunhum gets its name from the Ohlone word for  “resting place of the hummingbird.” Hummingbird is a central figure in the Ohlone creation story and an important part of their culture. Valentin Lopez, Chairman of the Amah-Mutsun Ohlone tribal band, reads the legend of how Hummingbird got fire from the Badger People.  KQED Qwest video

    How long does the persecution go on? Archived historical documentation,tribal storytelling, movies, non-fiction books, and witness accounts of the outrosaties are evidence of the deliberate harassment,theft of property, kidnapping, torture, murder, emotional, physical and sexual abuse by European settlers,the United States Government and “religious leaders”.

    I vote to hear the “whole truth and nothing but the truth” so help me god.

    Peace, compassion & equanimity,
