Time Has Many Voices

Time Has Many Voices


In the Bay area of San Francisco is an ancient village site where native peoples long ago lived and prospered. Now, in a once in a lifetime event, the descendants of those people, the Muwekma Ohlone, have partnered with archeologists to conduct one of the most intensive studies ever undertaken at an early pre-contact site in California. As the excavation proceeds, the ancient voices will speak and the modern-day descendants will be listening.
