The story of Cahuilla elder Katherine Siva Saubel and
Cahuilla cultural history, a subject on which Saubel ranks as an expert. The
story is told by present-day tribal elders and members, and a cast of
Katherine Siva Saubel grew up learning her native Cahuilla language, tribal
songs, medicinal plant uses, and myths of long ago. With her husband she founded
the first nonprofit tribal museum on an Indian reservation, the Malki Museum.
Today she works to preserve sacred sites and to protect Indian remains. As an
expert on Indian culture she educates the California legislature and the United
States Congress on issues of Native American culture, history and language. She
has taught worldwide about her culture--at UCLA, CSU Hayward, UC Riverside,
University of Cologne in Germany, and Hachinohe University in Japan. Her
writings are published by government agencies, academic institutions and
museums. She has received numerous awards for her work as an author, teacher,
historian, and activist.
Saubel is also an ethnobotanist, and with Lowell John Bean has written a book
that has become a classic in the field. Temalpakh

more than 250 plants and how they were used by the Cahuilla in Southern
California for food and beverages, for tools, sandals, fibers, dyes, baskets,
and many other practical matters.
