Tending the Wild: Native Plants and Native People
All the Native American tribes (Wappo, Pomo, and Miwok) whose territories surrounded Pepperwood relied upon plants for their survival and used them in every aspect of their lives. Join anthropologist and Pepperwood Cultural Resources Coordinator Benjamin Benson and Autumn Summers, program coordinator for the California School of Herbal Studies, as we explore through lecture and field work the sophisticated system of "tending of the wild" that these tribes and other groups of California's first peoples used to create an abundance of edible, medicinal, fibrous and basketry plants. Ages 14 and up welcome.
