Unless a concerted effort is made to preserve a people’s heritage, it will pass like time. The Kawaiisu Language and Cultural Center was formed to preserve the native tribe’s ancestry, along with other native California tribes’ history. Members of the center welcome non-natives, indicating their interest in sharing their traditions. In an effort to spread and embrace public curiosity, the center is sponsoring “Go Native Day” on Aug. 31, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. in Centennial Plaza on South Green Street. Julie Turner, one of the event organizers, explained the purpose of the event. “It’s not a pow wow, but a cultural sharing,” Turner said. “A lot of [native] people just come to socialize and listen to the music and watch the dancing.” The day will feature vendors, demonstrations, activities like basket weaving, storytelling in native languages with translations, live music, traditional native dancers and food provided by Red House BBQ. The restaurant was the original host of “Go Native Day” in its previous two years, but Turner said attendance grew so dramatically that Red House could no longer accomodate them. The owner, Mano Lujan, continues to be a supporter of the center and the event. Vendors and leaders of activities must be native, but not necessarily of the Kawaiisu, Turner said. Although the language and cultural center emphasizes Californian tribes and most of those who come fall into that category, Turner underlined that tribes from other regions are welcome, too. She referred to the Kawaiisu language and cultural traditions as “dying art forms.” “We have to generate interest from our youth,” Turner said. “There are some grassroots families that do practice a lot of these traditions. When we learn something new [from them], we want to introduce it into our community.” Kawaiisu Language and Cultural Center project coordinator Laura Grant said “Go Native Day” is part of the group’s effort to spread awareness about native people. “For everyone to [appreciate] the native language and values, they have to first recognize and understand them,” Grant said. “Most practices are held close within the family. [The day] is an opportunity to share the language and culture so people can understand why it’s important.” She said non-natives are gladly received because the group wants them to come and enjoy the traditions. Grant said she is not native. “One of the reasons I PHOTOS BY JON HAMMOND Chemehuevi artisan Mary "Weegi" Claw demonstrated how to make traditional coiled baskets at last year’s “Go Native Day. really like working with the Kawaiisu is because they welcome non-native people,” she said. Turner said turnout for the event has averaged about 500 people. Admission for adults costs $5 and children ages 12 and younger are free. All activities and food are included in the admission price. “We’re trying to promote cultural awareness,” Turner said. “A lot of people don’t know that we have a thriving native community in our backyard.” Main cover photo: Diana Almendariz, a Maidu and Wintun woman, demonstrates how duck decoys were traditionally made using tules.

Contractor’s License #632189 The Weekender — Wednesday, August 28, 2013 7 BVSCAA hosting archeological presentation BY LINDA COVERDALE CONTRIBUTING WRITER On Sunday, Sept. 8, the Bear Valley Springs Cultural Arts Association will present another of the popular Insight Series about prehistoric pictographs in Mexico. The event will begin at 4 p.m. and will be held in the Equestrian Center Lounge. The meeting will feature a presentation by Jeanette Pauer on the efforts of The Shumla School, an internationally recognized education and archeological research center located on the Pecos River just west of Del Rio, Texas, to record and document this worldclass rock art. Shumla launched the Lower Pecos Rock Art Recording and Preservation project in 2009, the most intensive rock art documentation project ever undertaken in the region. The presentation will include a visual tour through many of the rock art shelters in the Lower Pecos region, a history of paint making and the future of rock art in archeology. Pauer attended the University of New Hampshire for ceramics and pottery. During her summer months she apprenticed with Sandi Brown, of Pfafftown Pottery in North Carolina. Brown was the only contemporary female artist showing her work in the Museum of Fine Arts in North Carolina. Pauer transferred her junior year to Texas Tech University. In Texas she began to explore glass and glass blowing. She was fortunate enough to study under Terry Crenshaw, a Chule disciple. In 2011 Pauer became the assistant deputy executive director of The Shumla School. In August of 2012 she and her family moved to Tehachapi where she creates artwork from her studio and is active in the local community. Since space for the event is limited, reservations are required by no later than Sept. 5. Call Nancy at 8213534 for reservations or a gate pass.

COOK TEHACHAPI NEWS North of Lake Isabella and east of Fresno lies a land of extremes. It is a land that rewards the stalwart traveler with the aweinspiring majesty of nature on the grandest of scales, as well as the subtle beauty of a meadow of wildflowers. Sequoia National Park is one of the nation's oldest national parks, having been established in 1890, and is home to over 500 Native American archeological sites, as well as such natural splendors as Mount Whitney, the highest point in the continental United States, Chrystal Cave, a system of marble caverns, Moro Rock, a granitic dome that offers visitors stunning views of the surrounding area, and of course, the majestic Giant Forest, a grove of sequoia trees that contains five of the largest living things on the planet. Getting to the park is best accomplished from the west, by taking Highway 198 out of the Visalia area, past Lake Kaweah and into the park. The road then takes on the appropriate name of General's Highway as it makes its way past the giant sequoias, many of which are named after famous generals. Among the giant trees from which the park takes its name is the General Sherman Tree. With an estimated weight of more than 2.1 million pounds and a height of 275 feet, the massive tree is the world's largest living thing and is believed to be around 2,000 years old. The Giant Forest, which got its name from famous naturalist John Muir in 1875, contains more than 8,000 of the colossal trees, as well as the Giant Forest Museum, which contains educational exhibits about the ecology of the area. For a better look at the park, visitors can climb to the top of Moro Rock, a granitic dome, that offers views of the sawtoothed mountains of the Great Western Divide to the east and a panoramic vista back toward See MUCH TO SEE/Page 10 PHOTOS COURTESY OF THE NATIONAL PARKS SERVICE A hiker looks out toward the Great Western Divide from Bear Creak Trail in the Sequoia National Park.

What you put in your child's lunchbox might matter more than you realize. A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found a significant amount of sodium in the foods toddlers commonly eat. It's feared that similar levels of sodium are also found in a number of the foods older kids eat at school every day. As concerns rise about the early onset of high blood pressure, a major risk factor for heart disease, parents may want to re-examine those lunchbox choices. Why does sodium matter? A 2012 study of children and adolescents found that higher sodium consumption was associated with increased blood pressure. This effect was even greater in overweight and obese participants compared to normal weight participants. In addition, research suggests that children's taste for salt develops as they are exposed to it. The less sodium children consume, the less they want it. Children's taste for salt may be reduced if they are exposed to lower sodium diets at a young age. Eating less sodium can help lower blood pressure during childhood, which can help lower the risk of high blood pressure as an adult. (Family Features) They need to be able to eat it in 20 minutes or less. They need to be able to open and close all of the containers themselves. And it can't go bad before they eat it. What are we talking about? The lunch your kids take to school each day. Where's the sodium? Understanding sodium in foods can be confusing, especially when food that otherwise seems healthy may have high levels of sodium. Most of the sodium we eat doesn't come from the salt shaker, but is found in processed and restaurant foods. This chart shows the Top 10 Sodium Sources for children and adolescents. How many of these have made an appearance in your child's lunchbox? Make-Your-Own Snack Mix Get your kids involved in making this healthy snack mix. Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 0 minutes Yields: 4 servings Serving size: 1/2 cup snack mix What's a parent to do? Here are some tips to help tackle high sodium in your child's lunchbox: • Read food labels and compare the sodium amount in different products, then choose the options with the lowest amounts of sodium. Some varieties of bread can vary from 80 to 230 mg of sodium per slice. That can make a big difference in lunchtime sandwiches. • Pack fresh fruits and vegetables with lunch every day, like a small bag of baby carrots, snow peas, or grape tomatoes. • For a healthy snack, make trail mix using unsalted nuts, dried fruits and whole grain cereal. • When buying prepared meals, look for those with less than 600mg of sodium per serving. By packing a lower sodium school lunch for your children, you are not only setting them up for success in the classroom, but also in life. With your help, your children can develop healthy, low sodium eating habits that will last throughout their lives and help improve their heart health. For additional information about children and sodium and more tips for parents to help lower their family's sodium intake, visit www.cdc.gov/salt. Top 10 Sodium Sources People Aged 2-19 Years • 1 cup toasted oat cereal • 1/4 cup unsalted dry roasted peanuts (or other unsalted nut) • 1/4 cup raisins • 1/4 cup dried cranberries Combine all ingredients, and toss well. Serve immediately, or store for later snacking. Tip: Put snack mix in individual snack-sized bags for a great graband-go snack.

Much to see in Sequoia Continued from page 8 the San Joaquin Valley to the west. Moro Rock is 6,725 feet high, but visitors need only "climb" the last 300 feet to reach its summit. A quartermile trail/staircase was carved into the mountain in 1931 to allow guests access to the top. The journey is a relatively easy hike, but it is steep in places; while there are hand rails along most of it, the trail could prove daunting for those with a problem with heights, but the views are well worth the effort, particularly at sunset or sunrise. For a more down-to-earth experience, visitors can tour Crystal Caves, a system of caverns featuring ornate formations of polished marble. Guests can take a variety of guided tours through the caves, including a "Wild Cave" tour, which takes guests off the normal path of the general tours and into some of the caverns' less-traveled regions. Sequoia National Park offers guests a number of lodging choices including 14 campgrounds, many of which have RV hookups. For visitors not in the mood to "rough it," the Wuksachi Lodge offers luxury accommodations in the heart of the park. Sequoia National Park is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, but weather conditions can close certain activities - especially during winter months - so visitors are encouraged to plan ahead and contact the National Park Service by phone at 559-565-3341 or consult its website at nps.gov/seki.

Presidents since Jimmy Carter have issued proclamations urging citizens to, in the words of President Barack Obama, "honor those who have helped shape the character of our nation, and thank these role models for their immeasurable acts of love, care and understanding." At a stage in life when many people are already comfortably retired, some 2.7 million grandparents have taken on the responsibility of providing basic needs for their grandchildren, according to data compiled by Generations United. An alarming 21 percent of these vital caregivers live below the poverty line, even though 60 percent are still in the workforce. All told, an estimated 7.8 million children under 18 live in households headed by grandparents or other relatives, including those whose parents are absent due to death, substance abuse, military deployment or other reasons. Ironically, even though many of these "grandfamilies" barely scrape by, they save taxpayers more than $6.5 billion each year by keeping children out of the foster care system. So it only seems fair that many federal, state and local aid programs are available to help these guardian angels provide financial and emotional safety nets for their grandchildren. Among the many difficulties these families sometimes face: • If you become your grandchild's foster parent, you're responsible for dayto-day decisions and care, although the state retains legal custody and pays for the child's care. • Unless you establish some form of legal relationship (custody, guardianship or adoption), the parent may be able to take your grandchild from your home at any time. • In some states, it's difficult to enroll the child in school or get medical care without some form of legal relationship. • Most senior-only housing complexes don't allow child residents – which is legal – so some grandfamilies are forced to move. However, grandfamilies may be eligible for several federal tax credits: • A Child Tax Credit of up to $1,000 for each qualified grandchild, provided they lived with you for more than half the filing year and are under 17 at year's end. • If you qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit, you may be eligible for an additional amount for grandchildren you support. • A Child and Dependent Care Credit for childcare expenses incurred so you can work or seek employment. • If you adopt your grandchildren, you may be eligible for a nonrefundable Federal Adoption Credit of up to $12,970 per child. In addition, depending on your income and the health/disability status of your grandchildren, you may also be eligible for benefits from Medicaid, your state's Children's Health Insurance Program, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and numerous other federal, state and local aid programs. Helpful resources for grandfamilies include: • Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, a government-sponsored site at. www.usa.gov, that provides links to various subject-matter experts. • AARP's comprehensive GrandFamilies Guide (at www.aarp.org). • Benefits QuickLINK, an AARP tool to find out whether you or your grandchildren qualify for 15 different public benefits. • GrandFacts, a searchable database at www.aarp.org, where you can locate key state and local resources, foster care policies and services, public benefits, financial and education assistance, and relevant state laws. • Generations United, whose "Grandfamilies" website highlights challenges often faced by these households (www.gu.org/OURWORK/Grandfamilies.aspx). Do something to honor your own grandparents this Grandparents Day. And if you know others who are raising their grandkids, make sure they know about the many available resources.

It is in a family of small shrubs that bloom from late summer to early fall with misty blue flowers and medium green foliage. It dies back to the ground in winter and is considered an herbaceous perennial. The low maintenance shrub is deer resistant, drought tolerant, and disease resistant. It grows best in full sun or light shade and prefers a not too rich soil that is more dry than wet. It will not tolerate wet, muddy soils, especially in the winter. Bluebeard needs very little fertilizer. Too much fertilizer will make more leafy growth than flowers Butterflies and bees are attracted to the medium blue flowers that bloom on new wood. Any winter damaged branches could be pruned off in early spring without losing any flowers. The plant generally lives three to four years before it needs replacing. Bluebeard grows to 1-3 feet tall with a spread of 3-6 feet and can be used in mixed borders or in a mixed garden. The attractive blue flowering plant mixes well with red salvia and white daisies for a patriotic look. The airy blue flowers make attractive filler to floral arrangements. The Caryopteris name is Greek in origin meaning “winged nut,” which refers to the small winged fruit that appears after the flowers are spent. This shrub would be a beautiful addition to your summerfall blooming flower garden. It mixes very well with other sun-loving perennials and PHOTO COURTESY OF LUCIA SANDY is great for fall color.
