  Plants for food and medicine

Indian people now have the skills and capacity to show our cultures to the general public as living, evolving, and contributing to present day California instead of having ended in the past century. Luther Girado teaches us about the uses of local plants for food and medicine and we have recorded him to create several DVDs and CDs for learning traditions. From there we made lesson plans for Kawaiisu language students that can be used by any teacher, now and in the future.

These projects have been funded by the Alliance for California Traditional Arts, the Native Cultures Fund, and the Ringing Rocks Foundation.
