California Council for the Humanities has approved a grant application that Beverly Ortiz, Marjorie Rhodes-Ousley (East Bay California State University) and I submitted last August!
We asked for funding to interview and learn the family history of Ruth Orta who is a granddaughter of a San Jose Mission California Indian family. We will interview members of her immediate family and share the information in an exhibit at Clark Smith Museum of Anthropology at CSU East Bay next year.
Students who sign up for the Cultural Anthropology class will have a chance to participate in the collection of stories process!!
