Desert Foods and Tools: the Sonoran Supermarket Program Details

Today, basic survival for most of us means regular trips to (or delivery from!) the supermarket. But imagine living in the Sonoran Desert five hundred years ago. Everything you needed came directly from nature. This program explores local resources that native peoples of the Sonoran Desert — Tohono O'odham, Yaqui, and Seri — have traditionally used for food, medicines, fibers, and more. You’ll learn what’s ready to harvest now, along with some tips for preparation and cooking.
