A Celebration of Traditional Culture, in three books

Three books related to Northern California's indigenous culture, three local authors. Each book celebrates a different aspect of biocultural diversity.

Waterdog & the Love Charm is a delightfully mischievous tale told by Dry Creek Pomo Elizabeth “Belle” Lozinto Cordova Dollar (edited by her great-niece Sherrie Smith-Ferri of the Grace Hudson Museum) illustrating the close ties between nature and culture.

In Pomo Cradle Baskets: An Introduction, Redwood Valley Pomo master weaver Corine Pearce describes the history, wild-crafting, distinct styles and contemporary use of traditional cradle baskets.

The Beadwork of Stewart Wilburn commemorates fifty years of stunning artistry by a renowned Wailaki/Tolowa/Pomo/Wintu beader whose work honors and represents the people and wildlife of Northern California.

Examples of traditional basketry and beadwork will be on view, and signed books will be available for purchase after the presentation. Refreshments will be served.
