Maestra Indígena Enseña Su Herbolaria

Jane Dumas, anciana  líder indígena de San Diego, está dada a la tarea de compartir lo que sabe de herbolaria y de medicina natural. Esta sabiduría le fue pasada por sus ancestros de habla Kumeyaay, lengua que está a punto de extinguirse. Para evitar que al conocimiento tradicional de las hierbas y plantas medicinales le pase lo que a su lengua, Doña Jane ha comenzado a enseñarlo a su chofer, y con su ayuda, a un grupo de alumnos. Esto reporta Ana Lilia Barraza desde San Diego Califonia. This is a report from our series “Nuestras Raíces: Stories about Folk Artists.”

“INDIGENOUS TEACHER PASSES ON HERBAL KNOWLEDGE” – Jane Dumas, an indigenous elder of San Diego, has taken on the task of sharing what she knows about herbs and natural medicine. This wisdom was passed on to her by her ancestors who spoke Kumeyaay, a language which is in danger of becoming extinct. In order to make sure that the same thing that happened to her language will not happen to the traditional knowledge of herbs and medicinal plants, Jane has begun to teach her chauffeur and, with his help, a group of students. Ana Lilia Barraza reports from San Diego, California.
