BERKELEY, Ca.–Sometimes a special event comes together after years and years of planning and sometimes it happens overnight due to the “magic of the moment”. Such was the inspiration for the 3rd Annual California Indian Arts and Culture Festival or “California Native Ways,'' held on June 11, 2022 in Berkeley’s Ohlone Park. The festival brought together 20 artists, culture bearers, story tellers, dancers, and singers from around the state, who maintain and expand the artistic heritage of Native California. In addition to demonstrations of traditional arts and crafts, two traditional canoes were displayed, one carved from a redwood log by George Blake of the Hupa and Yurok Nations and one plank canoe carved by artist L. Frank Manriquez of the Tongva/Acjachemen Nation. Both artists answered questions from those attending.

There is a perception of Native people still widely held in the United States: Google Image search “Native American” and at the top of the search will likely be archaic photos of Native Americans taken by Edward Curtis–tin types and sepia toned. These outdated images continue to inform a style that over a century later dominates museum exhibitions and the tops of Google searches: the Indian in a headdress, bareback on a horse, etc. Diné photographer Will Wilson uses the very tin type and sepia that froze Native Americans in the past to shatter the myth and bring Natives very much into contemporary, modern art.
