...Trinh T. Minh-ha is on our mind: dinner at Café Ohlone
Café Ohlone seeks to decolonize through food. Using ingredients that would be recognizable and attainable in the Ohlone world before contact with outside forces, the organization hosts meals that revive traditional cuisine native to the northern California coast. The food served represents true California fare.

Founders Vincent Medina (Chochenyo Ohlone) and Louis Trevino (Rumsen Ohlone) conducted extensive research before opening their café—speaking to elders and reviewing documentation recorded in the 1920s and 1930s by members of Indian communities from Sunol and Carmel.

We listen as Medina and Trevino share this cultural knowledge with us over a bountiful meal.

This is the fourth event in our year-long season dedicated to the questions posed by the work of Trinh T. Minh-ha and how they address art, culture, and society today.

Dinner begins at 6:00pm.
Café Ohlone @ University Press Books/Musical Offering, 2430 Bancroft Way, xučyun (Berkeley)
