Yosemite Natives



Having lived just outside of Yosemite National Park for many years, I was fascinated with its history, especially that of the ancestors of the Native Americans who still live in the area. Julia Parker (#10) would come to my classroom to teach the children how to weave pine needle baskets, as she has done in the park for over sixty years. At 84 years old, she is the Matriarch of the banded area Yosemite Tribes and leads the Opening Ceremony for the annual Pow Wow in Mariposa, CA each year. The tribes and their languages are dwindling now and they struggle to pass on their history and language to their grandchildren, who are so caught up in the ways of the world. It will be a huge loss to the world if this rich history is forgotten.
