For Indigenous People’s Day 2023, we are launching the beta version of the Thámien Ohlone AR Tour. The tour tells the story of our historical campus from the perspective of the Ohlone people, with the goal of revealing hidden histories, spurring visitors towards critical reflection, and inspiring visions of more just future relations.

The project has been almost a year of hard work by Cinthya Jauregui (BS ’22, MS ’24), Tiffany Nguyen (BS ’26), Mohan Raj Chandrasekar (MS ’24), Sarah Hazel Sallee (BA ’25), Liam A’Hearn (BS ’24), Dominic Woetzel (BS ’25), and Professors Kai Lukoff (Computer Science and Engineering), Amy Lueck (English), Lee Panich (Anthropology), and Danielle Heitmuller (Art) and of course our partners at the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe.

We’re especially proud that this is a truly interdisciplinary effort: faculty and students from at least eight different departments at SCU are represented: Computer Science and Engineering, Anthropology, English, Art, Music, Philosophy, Communications, and Engineering Management.

  • Date: Monday, Oct 9 (Indigenous People’s Day 2023)
  • Time: 10am-4pm
  • Location: University Fountain at SCU

If you are on campus, please stop by the fountain to try it out and share your feedback.
