On November 3, 2018, the Tree of Life Nursery in San Juan Capistrano will host members of the Seri/Comca’ac Women’s Artisan Cooperative from Desemboque on the Sea of Cortez in Sonora, Mexico. They will be sharing their beautiful basketry, necklaces of shell, bead, and bone, and elegant ironwood carvings. The poster above is from Tree of Life Nursery

From the Tree of Life Website:
Tree of Life Nursery is honored to host a group of artisans from the indigenous Seri (Comcáac) tribe, hailing from the arid coast of Sonora, Mexico. These Seri artisans will have their finest items available for sale, and in the spirit of “fair trade,” 100 percent of the sale proceeds will stay with the artisans. Stay tuned for more information.
