Based in Portland, Oregon, Ramon is an award-winning author, illustrator, activist for Native youth, and multicultural chef. He was raised in Palo Alto, California amongst the Indigenous activist community of the bay area that was born from the Occupation of Alcatraz in 1970. His mother, June Legrand ‘Sukuybtet’ was a radio broadcaster, storyteller, educator, and social activist that surrounded him with Native perspectives and spirituality. Her gifts of guidance and education provided a foundation of connection that Ramon continues in his teachings today. His core values are focused on building healthy and empowering relationships which reflect our foodway systems and the need to share our Indigenous food knowledge in this ever-changing world.
We’re grateful to Ramon and Caitlyn for creating such a special evening for us and feeding everyone so much beautiful and delicious food. Stay tuned for upcoming Community Tours, which are free and open to the public each month, and feature fun opportunities to meet with our staff and connect with our community of Native artists and culture bearers.
Our work centers the belief that American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian artists and culture bearers are leading powerful conversations through creative expression, bringing valuable perspective to contemporary life, and inspiring healing across cultural divides. We are excited to expand access to these perspectives through increasing visibility of Native creativity at our new home – the Center for Native Arts and Cultures.
