Ishi is a part of the CA East Bay culture. I did a high school report on him and the SF Bay tribes in the 50s. I wonder how many students in CA have even been made aware of him/them within the present courses. The Parks Dept. Does a pretty good job of posting information on the history of the Bay Area on trails and rec. lands. Much more is needed to preserve the lands heratige. Ignorance, abuse and bigotry - we and our parents are all guilty of. Chief Seattle - whos not much visited grave in Washington - summed it up best.

My tribe didn't get off the boat until the 1890's. As far as I know, we never bothered any injuns. Get over it.
