Join us for the 15th annual Heyday Harvest, honoring Corrina Gould for Lifetime Achievement and Damon B. Akins & William J. Bauer Jr. with the Heyday History Award.
We will celebrate the collective effort of the Heyday community that brings our mission to life on a daily basis. You can expect to hear from Heyday authors and readers, publisher Steve Wasserman, Board and staff members, and our honorees.
If you can’t make the broadcast on October 28, a replay will be available.
Corrina Gould (Lisjan Ohlone) is the tribal spokesperson for the Confederated Villages of Lisjan/Ohlone and Co-Founder/Co-Director of the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust. Born and raised in her ancestral homeland, the Ohlone territory of Huchiun, she is the mother of three and grandmother of four. Gould has worked on preserving and protecting the ancient burial sites of her ancestors throughout the Bay Area for decades. As a tribal leader, she has continued to fight for the protection of the Shellmounds, uphold her nation's inherent right to sovereignty, and stand in solidarity with Indigenous relatives to protect sacred waters, mountains, and lands all over the world.
We Are the Land: A History of Native California (UC Press, 2021) is the first and most comprehensive text of its kind, centering the long history of California around the lives and legacies of the Indigenous people who shaped it. Beginning with the ethnogenesis of California Indians, Akins and Bauer recount the centrality of the Native presence from before European colonization through statehood—paying particularly close attention to the persistence and activism of California Indians in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.
Damon B. Akins is Associate Professor of History at Guilford College, in Greensboro, North Carolina, and a former high school teacher in Los Angeles.
William J. Bauer Jr. is an enrolled citizen of the Round Valley Indian Tribes and Professor of History at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
