California native basketweaver Linda Yamane will create two Ohlone twined work baskets—a pechump tiprin that sits on a stone mortar for acorn preparation, and xaapsh, a utilitarian twined container. Each connects specifically to her Rumsien Ohlone heritage and homeland in Carmel Valley. The Santa Lucia Conservancy’s property is adjacent to her ancestral village, and the Conservancy’s plant ecologist is working closely with Yamane to manage and give her access to sedge, Bracken Fern, and other needed basketry materials. They also will develop web-based educational materials. Linda Yamane is a Rumsien Ohlone artist, basketweaver, singer, and tribal scholar who is active in reviving Rumsien traditions. The Santa Lucia Conservancy, a nonprofit land trust incorporated in 1995, conserves the ecological integrity of the protected lands within the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, California.
