San Francisco to create American Indian Cultural District


November 20, 2019

On the eve of the 50th anniversary of the occupation of Alcatraz Island, San Francisco Supervisor Hilary Ronen will introduce legislation today to form a Native American Cultural District.

“Cultural Districts are one of the most important tools we as a city have to proactively strengthen the cultural identities of neighborhoods and communities that face the pressures of gentrification and displacement,” said Supervisor Ronen in a written statement. “There are few communities in the country that have experienced displacement as violently and as profoundly as American Indian people.”
