Berkeley’s Thousand Oaks neighborhood and its environs are not only regarded as a swell place to live — they have a rich history too. No doubt the two are connected.  Tomorrow night, Alan Leventhal, a tribal ethnohistorian specializing in the Ohlone will speak at the invitation of the Thousand Oaks Neighborhood Association about the lives of the Muwekma Ohlone tribe who lived in Thousand Oaks.

The TONA General Meeting, which will feature the talk and an accompanying slideshow, takes place at the Thousand Oaks Baptist Church Auditorium, Catalina at Colusa Avenues, 7:00 – 9:00pm.

Find out more on  the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe of the San Francisco Bay Area website.
