Gifts of our Sisters – Lost and Found
December 5, 2014 – February 1, 2015
We are the people of the Ipai/Tipai/Kumeyaay Nation ~ those who face the water from a cliff ~ the largest Native American population residing in the extreme southwestern United States and northwest Mexico. Kumeyaay - the name acknowledges and reaffirms our common culture, language and history. We are a tenacious people who trace our existence since the beginning of time.
What have we learned from the lives of Kumeyaay women, original inhabitants of San Diego County? From birthing rituals to puberty rites, the Kumeyaay mark their life’s milestones in unique ways.
Explore their culture, learn about their clothes, food, tattoos, art, herbal remedies, songs, and stories. Understand what we have gained and what we have lost.

PUBLIC OPENING will be DECEMBER 5th, 2014 at 5 PM
