Knowledge about native plants of the indigenous people of Baja California
Author: Michael Wilken-Robertson
The award-winning book Kumeyaay Ethnobotany: Shared Heritage of the Californias is now available in Spanish!
Kumiai Ethnobotany explores the remarkable interdependence between native peoples and endemic plants of the Californias, through an in-depth description of 47 plants and their uses; a lively narrative, and hundreds of vivid photographs. It links historical and archaeological records with living cultures and with native plant specialists, who share their ever-relevant wisdom for future generations.
OUR NEXT EVENTS
Attendees will have the opportunity to walk on several sections of the original Camino Real de las Californias and visit old villages, missions, ranches, oasis and rock art sites
Due to continuing COVID-19 health concerns and to ensure the safety of our travelers, the October 19-26, 2020 tour of Mexico City has been postponed. Many of the museums, archaeological sites and other destinations on the itinerary will likely remain closed until it is safe for them to reopen.
