Description: Native person holding spear going to fish in stream. mountain, field deer.
Notes: This mural seems to lean on stereotypical depictions of native Ohlone people. Eastbaywalls.com recommends doing research directly with native folks in the area. This mural appears to be based on paintings done by early 19th century artists- generally Russian and other white settler-colonists, and should not be taken as accurate. More information available from the Friends of the San Leandro Creek http://fslc.org/special-projects/natures-hidden-treasure/ The mural was painted by 100 volunteers. It took over 2,300 hours and is one of the largest murals of its kind. It covers approximately 19,500 square feet.
