What would it be like to live at the time when the Native Americans were the only people here?

We will know what a stereotype is and how Native Americans have been stereotyped. We will know that each Native American tribe is different and has unique customs and beliefs.

We will have respect for Native American art and culture and know that all the art the Ohlone created was sacred and a prayer.

We are able to discuss and write about Ohlone daily life as well as different beliefs that the Ohlone had. We understand the ways in which the Ohlone respected the earth and why they did.

We will have learned about a different culture and understand an important piece of United States history.
