Another Successful Tule Harvest at S.M.I.

In late August of 2013 another Tule Harvest happened at Sonoma Mountain Institute in Petaluma, CA.  This year’s harvest was a great collaborative effort made by Occidental Art and Ecology Center for their onsite management and assistance with tying up some of the bundles of tules, S.M.I. assisted with cutting, drying, and hauling our clean, healthy, and beautiful tule, as always The Cultural Conservancy team gifted the project their experience in the creation and design of a Tule boat, and lastly the Federated Indians of the Graton Rancheria and the Kalliopeia Foundation have provided their support of building Tule Boats for years. The Cultural Conservancy will also be debuting at Bioneers this year alongside the Tule Boats that will be on display. Sonoma Mountain Institute is grateful to take part in the continuing preservation of  indigenous cultural traditions.  IMG_7595 IMG_7615 IMG_7632 IMG_7633
