“Indigenous Foods and Native Subsistence: Living off the Sustainable Landscape” by Richard Carrico

The Culinary Historians of San Diego present “Indigenous Foods and Native Subsistence: Living off the Sustainable Landscape” by anthropologist and educator Richard Carrico. Join us 10:30am-noon on January 15, 2022 for this LIVE public lecture in the Shiley Event Suite, downtown San Diego Central Public Library. This in-person event is free and open to the public.

Carrico will detail how, for thousands of years, the Kumeyaay people of San Diego County were more than simple hunters and gatherers. Instead, they developed a healthy, sustainable cuisine based on native plants, seafood and land animals.

The library currently limits attendance to 50% capacity, and all in attendance are required to wear masks.
