    “This long-awaited book is one of the first works solely devoted to the medical knowledge of California Indians. It will satisfy museum visitors, as well as students of Chumash culture, who frequently ask questions regarding traditional medicinal practices. The growing literature regarding Chumash ethnography will be enriched by this contribution.” - John R. Johnson, curator of anthropology at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History.

    About the Malki Museum:
    Malki Museum, Inc., is a nonprofit educational corporation dedicated to saving and sharing the knowledge, cultures and languages of the Indian people of Southern California. The Museum, founded in 1964, was the first Indian-run public museum on a reservation in the United States. Malki has been instrumental in preserving Southern California Indian languages, Cupeno, Luiseno, and especially Cahuilla, with grammar and language books, a bilingual language tape, and videos. All of these are opportunities for Malki to share with Indians and non-Indians knowledge of traditional foods and customs. People of different cultures get to know each other better by working together in a mutual cause and learning to respect each other's differences.
