Sutter’s Fort to Present “Hands on History: A Community of Many Faces” on 5/16!

Sutter’s Fort to Present “Hands on History:  A Community of Many Faces” on 5/16!

Continuing a popular series of interactive and fun “Hands on History” activities each month,  Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park (SHP) will present a special “Hands on History: A Community of Many Faces” event on Saturday, May 16, 2015 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The special “Hands on History: A Community of Many Faces” event will celebrate and honor the richly diverse cultures represented at the Fort.  In fact, the Gold Rush of 1849 brought tens of thousands of people to California from all over the world.  But even before the first gold seekers arrived, Sutter’s Fort was already a melting pot of ethnic, social and cultural diversity.  In the New Helvetia Diary (the daily log book of Sutter’s Fort), there are at least 30 different groups of Native people mentioned as having visited the Fort and/or provided labor for John Sutter.

By Erica Root

It takes twenty seconds of courage to change a life.

Earlier this month I sat down with Nilda Valmores, Executive Director for My Sister’s House, a local non-profit here in Sacramento that helps women and children impacted by domestic violence. She told me a story – which she admitted was not her own, but that stuck with her – about an Indian man who overheard a violent screaming match next door. He breathed deep and remained courageous for twenty seconds, long enough for him to ring his neighbor’s doorbell. Long enough to distract the screaming couple from their fight.

It’s these little acts of courage that could make the difference in cases of domestic violence. In twenty seconds the scales can tip: It can make the difference in saving a neighbor, a family member, a friend, or a co-worker... Read More
