Join us for a journey in time to learn how the Pipil from El Salvador lived and thrived in a rich environment. A people long gone, their history can now only be found in stone and the heart of its descendants. Come and listen to the wisdom of its people through a story of how the 'god' of wind, and 'god' sun created maize. Join us and make an "offering dish" to take home as a symbol of the love of a people towards the land that birthed them.
This event is first in a 3-part Nature & Culture educational program series that highlights diverse cultures and their unique connections with nature! Stay tuned for more.
