About the Event

For thousands of years, the Kumeyaay people of northern Baja California, Mexico, and Southern California have made their homes in the diverse landscapes of the region, interacting with native plants and continuously refining their botanical knowledge. Join anthropologist Michael Wilken-Robertson and photographer Deborah Small to explore the remarkable interdependence between Native peoples and native plants of the Californias through descriptions of local native plants and their uses, lively narratives, and stunning photography.
Followed by a book signing for Kumeyaay Ethnobotany: Shared Heritage of the Californias.
