Ethnobotanical Calendar

Please click on the link below for Edible, Medicinal, Material, Ceremonial: Contemporary Ethnobotany of Southern California Indians, our collaborative 2010 Calendar.

Rose Ramirez and I thank our extensive network of friends and collaborators featured in the calendar, as well as Margie Adcock, former CSUSM student and now full-time graphic designer at Palomar College, for help with every aspect of the calendar’s layout, press production, and PDF.

  1. To walk the way of an indigenous person (Indian or Peasant) one must be a gatherer, a searcher of the Creator’s Gifts and Spirit.
    To separate a Creator’s child from the Mother or the Father is a great injustice to the spiritual beauty hidden with the Creation Plan.

    Continue walking and if you find some textilis calling out in search of a bone awl to be made into a basket … I’m thankful that I was a gatherer for the late Juanita Centeno and am tired of hearing those darn deer bones crying out to join up with some textilis to make a basket.

    Learn and obey the “Good Rules of the Creator”.

    Dear Deborah,
    I am really interested in finding out more about Yabra mansa plants, and especially about the exact locations they can be collected in New Mexico in particular.

    Also, may I have your email so that I can ask my questions in greater detail.

    Thank you,

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Parvathi Chary

  6. Deborah,

    I just came across your calendar. It is magnificent. I volunteer for the Santa Clara Valley Chapter of the California Native Plant Society. I would love to see enlarged prints of each panel on display at local libraries. I can make that happen locally with your permission.

  9. Hi Deborah, I absolutely LOVE the work you are doing with southern California tribes to preserve local food traditions. I recently graduated from San Francisco State University and have moved back home to San Diego in order to learn more about the native flora and fauna of the region, plant uses and also traditional resource management techniques. I also hope to gain more knowledge of local edible, medicinal, material and ceremonial plants and am glad to have stumbled on your small webblog. I want to thank you for all the work you have done and put toward the revitalization of tribal traditions.
    I wasn’t able to attend your presentation at the CNPSSD, but would love to attend future classes, courses or presentations. Is there a way I could get onto a mailing list or attend a class you give? Would i have to enroll at the San Marcos University or are there other means of connecting and learning?
    Thanks again for all you do!
    Sincerely, Glorious
