We Are Still Here!


Opening of the multi-media exhibit on April 26, 2013, on Alcatraz Island. 

In 2009, in collaboration with native leaders, a group of San Francisco State and California State University East Bay students and faculty conducted interviews of native scholars and activists and documented the 40th anniversary of the historic 19-month American Indian occupation of Alcatraz Island.  The resulting exhibit was originally shown at the San Francisco State Cesar Chavez Student Center Art Gallery in November 2010 and was subsequently invited by the National Park Service to be installed on Alcatraz Island.

Veterans of the 1969 occupation, traditional dancers and artists, and Indian activists from around the country, were present to open the exhibit.   Please let me know if you have corrections to the captions
