Origins of Oakland: Land, Labor, Home, and Native Presence

Planning the interpretation of the archaeological remains of the original structures at Peralta Hacienda to uncover the story of Native American influence on site.

Peralta Hacienda Historical Park, six-acre open space and humanities hub in a Latinx and Native community in Oakland, California, winner of the 2017 National Museum Medal, was once the headquarters of the 45,000-acre Spanish/Mexican era rancho that covered the land of seven modern cities including all of Oakland and Berkeley. The project requests funds to plan experiential programs and multi-sensory exhibits to reveal and interpret the site's oldest features: the footprint of land grant family's 1821 adobe house, which Native Americans built and lived in first; a rich archaeological deposit in the adjacent adobe-making pit; and an underground well from the rancho. The project will recover the Native American story of the site and the community, offer understanding of a new labor system akin to slavery that transformed the landscape, and delve into the nature of 'home' and the process that forms history from the archives.

Peralta Hacienda Historical Park Historic Core and Public History Director

Building the Historic Core Adobe Area where the Peraltas' 1821 and 1840 adobes once stood and endowment for the Director of History position.

Six-acre Peralta Hacienda Historical Park, a California State Landmark whose landscape, historic house and interpretive exhibits tell the iconic national story of California's rapid changes under Spanish, Mexican and US rule as experienced by four generations of the region's first Spanish-speaking family, is located today in the diverse urban community of Fruitvale, where the stories of the community today, the new faces of America, are linked to the West Coast's early history in a unique crucible of community and audience engagement through the humanities. This grant will enable the site to build the Historic Core section of the park according to the master plan created under NEH funding in 2001 and endow a permanent staff position for a historian as Director of History at the site.

Spanish, Mexican, and American California: Reframing U.S. History at Peralta Hacienda

Two one-week Landmarks workshops for eighty school teachers on California in the Spanish, Mexican, and American periods, using the Peralta family of northern California as a case study.

"Spanish, Mexican, and American California: Reframing U.S. History at Peralta Hacienda" consists of two one-week NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops held during summer 2012 for eighty school teachers on California in the Spanish, Mexican, and American periods, using the Peralta family of northern California as a case study. This program gives teachers the opportunity to examine the connections between United States history and that of Mexico through Luis Peralta, a soldier and colonist, and his family. The Peraltas were among the original californios, descendants of Spanish-speaking settlers who arrived with the Anza expedition to the San Francisco Bay area in 1776. Topics under examination include encounters between Spanish colonists and Native Americans, independence from Spain, the Mexican-American war, repercussions of the Mexican revolution, and the bracero program, a twentieth-century work program that brought temporary laborers from Mexico to the United States. These broad topics are grounded by primary sources, as well as secondary scholarship by Ramón Gutiérrez, Douglas Monroy, and William Deverell, among others. Most workshop sessions take place at Peralta Hacienda Historical Park in Oakland, which features a nineteenth-century Peralta family home and the remains of two earlier adobe houses. In addition to studying the buildings and archaeological record at Peralta Hacienda, participants visit the San Francisco Presidio, Ceja Vineyard, Sonoma Mission, and Oakland's Fruitvale neighborhood. Along with co-directors Alex Saragoza (ethnic studies, University of California, Berkeley) and Holly Alonso (Friends of Peralta Hacienda Historical Park), project faculty members include Charles C. Mann (independent scholar), Ramón Gutiérrez (University of Chicago), Albert Hurtado (University of Oklahoma), Douglas Monroy (Colorado College), Mary Jo Wainwright (Diablo College), Tey Diana Rebolledo (University of New Mexico), Myrna Santiago (St. Mary's College), Rick Tejada-Flores (filmmaker), and David Gutierrez (University of California, San Diego). Participants also meet with former braceros Pablo and Juana Ceja.
