Cafe Ohlone (mak-‘amham) co-founders Vincent Medina and Louis Trevino
discuss their efforts to strengthen Ohlone culture through food.
mak-‘amham (mahk-am-haam) means “our food” in the Chochenyo language,
the native language of the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay, the area
known as "the East Bay." mak-’amham is an Ohlone cultural institution
that works to empower the Ohlone community with tradition—it teaches the
public, through taste, of the unbroken roots of the Ohlone people.
