Thursday

 

 

 

Lecture - C.S.I Pleasanton
Presented by Andrew Galvan, Marie Galbo, Richard Thompson, & Phillip Reid.
 

Through discussions, story-telling and tool-making demonstrations, the rich Indian heritage of the Amador Valley is presented not only through the eyes of an Ohlone Indian descendant, but  from an archaeological perspective as well.

 

Richard Thompson and Phillip Reid will participate in the lecture presentation. Thompson is an archaeologist who worked in the San Francisco and Monterey Bay areas since 1989.  A native to California, he has directed and conducted archaeological investigations at over 100 prehistoric Indian sites and several California missions.

Reid is an archaeologist who has worked in the San Francisco Bay area since 1955.  With specialized training in human osteology, Phillip is able to explain how the study of prehistoric human remains can add to our understanding about the lives of the Ohlone Indians.

 

Galvan, a California Mission Indian descendant and Roman Catholic, is the curator of Old Mission San Francisco de Asis, Mission Dolores, in San Francisco. He is a descendant of the Ohlone, Bay Miwok, Plains Miwok and Patwin Indians whose ancestral lands comprise the greater San Francisco Bay Region.  His family's roots reach back beyond European contact in this area.

Galvan has served as a Native American Indian Consultant/Monitor at prehistoric archaeological sites in the Counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara.
He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the California State University, Hayward, and is currently studying there for his master's degree in history.

Currently, he is President of The Board of Directors of The Ohlone Indian Tribe, Inc.  He is a founding member The California Mission Foundation.  He is also a member of The California Mission Studies Association, and served as its board president from 1994-1997.

Since 1995, Galvan has been an Associate of the Sisters of The Holy Family, and is currently coordinator of the Community's Prospective Associate program.  A former Franciscan Seminarian, Galvan continues to have an active part in the Franciscan Family in California.  From 1981-1998, he served as the administrative assistant to The Reverend Noel Francis Moholy, O.F.M., S.T.D., Vice-Postulator of The Cause for Blessed Junipero Serra's Canonization. Galvan makes his home in Mission San Jose, California.
