A Teacher's Guide to Historical and Contemporary Kumeyaay Culture
(A Supplemental Resource for Third and Fourth Grade Teachers)
From the Introduction: "The first version of this project was produced as part of a master’s thesis at San Diego State University. Geralyn Hoffman completed her B.A. in Anthropology and Archaeology at Boston University and her M.A. in Anthropology at San Diego State University--later on becoming the Education Coordinator at the San Diego Museum of Man. Lynn Gamble is Associate Professor and Director of the Collections Management Program in the Department of Anthropology at San Diego State University. Her recent publications have focused on a wide range of topics, including the origin of the plank canoe in the New World, the emergence of a ranked society among the Chumash Indians, trading activities in Southern California, adaptations to paleoclimatic change, and the challenges surrounding site preservation in the United States. Her recent research entails working with the Kumeyaay on both sides of the border in the interpretation of cultural landscapes and material culture.
This guide was published with the generous support of the Campo Kumeyaay Nation, the Barona Band of Mission Indians, the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation, the Southwest Consortium for Environmental Research and Policy, and the Institute for Regional Studies of the Californias."
