    Details

    This booklet addresses the use, by some Southern California native people, of agave, called Maguay in Spanish, and its close relative, yucca. It is important to recognize that every group had its own way of doing things. The information presented represents the way women from three different Cahuilla lineages used agave and yucca as a resource for food and fiber.

    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.
