Welcome to the Barona Cultural Center & Museum
Virtual Exhibit - Heritage Project
Week 5, Heritage Class
During week five, the students made Ethnobotanical Bookmarks! Last year Museum Staff collected, pressed and dried plant samples from the Native Plant Garden. Each student chose a plant sample for his/her bookmark. On one side, the students wrote in specimen information: plant name, scientific name, 'Iipay Aa name, and uses by the Kumeyaay/Diegueño people. On the other side, they glued down the plant sample. Each bookmark was then laminated.
