Friends of Deer Hollow Farm has scheduled its annual Ohlone Day Living History Festival and fundraiser 1-4 p.m. Saturday at the farm, located in Rancho San Antonio County Park.
Activities include tours of a replica Native American Ohlone village, hands-on demonstrations of Ohlone daily life, a hoop and spear game, face-painting, acorn-grinding, shell-drilling and rope-making.
Longtime lead teacher Keith Gutierrez will conduct fire-starting and archery demonstrations, and flint-knapping and tool-crafting artisans David Dewey and Dick Baugh will demonstrate how to make hand-crafted Ohlone tools.
The festival is ideal for second through sixth-graders who study Native American cultures as part of their curriculum as well as Boy and Girl Scouts working to earn merit badges.
Cost is $5 per person, free for children under 1. Proceeds benefit the farm, which is managed by the city of Mountain View.
