Coming up on Saturday, August 19, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 pm, archeologist and education specialist Jordan Taher will be offering a talk and demonstration on prehistoric use of yucca.

The single most non-cultivated plant used by the native peoples of the Southwest was the yucca plant. Plants that we take for granted were valued raw materials in the past. Fiber, cordage, nets, ties, food and clothing - the many uses and forms provided by yucca satisfied the twelfth century needs of the people much like our one-stop shopping stores do today.

Gain hands-on experience in the processing of the plant and come prepared to get wet and messy while scraping, twisting and working in this ancient art.
