Museo Comunitario de Tecate Partnership

Our newest addition to the gift shop signals the start of a new partnership with the Museo Comunitario de Tecate. A little bit about the museum from their website:

"The museum project began as an idea of Kumiai community members who dreamed of a place where Kumiai culture could be passed on to future generations.  Tecate area Kumiai community members have participated in the planning process, and have set clear priorities for the museum, which they hope will “instill respect for our territory (sacred sites, environment), cultures and customs; provide accurate information on the history of the native regions of Baja California; create a neutral space for all the communities, and involve Kumiai in the whole process. We want this museum to become a reality.”

The art now for sale is the work of Kumeyaay and Pai Pai artisans who partner with the Tecate museum.
