Learn how Native Americans used the indigenous yucca plant for both food and tools at an upcoming class at the Barona Cultural Center & Museum on Saturday, April 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Students will learn how to clean the yucca and prepare the fiber to make nets. Experts will also roast the heart of the plant and participants will have an opportunity to taste the traditional food.
Led by Stan Rodriguez of the Santa Ysabel Band of Diegueño Indians and Martha Rodriguez of San Jose de la Zorra, the $20 class includes lunch and is available to guests 12 and over.
Please RSVP by April 7 by calling 619-443-7003 ext. 2.
