About the film

Using a mix of animation, music and real audio, Injunuity: Buried highlights Ohlone activist and educator Corrinna Gould as she discusses the ongoing destruction of sacred tribal shell mounds in Northern California. The film focuses on the largest shell mound in the bay area, which was completely removed during the dot-com boom in order to build the Bay Street Mall in Emeryville, California.
