The children keyed into where their mothers and grandmothers were because of the pounding (on the grinding rocks). That rhythm is in the bones of the Sierra. It’s in my bones, and I am very grateful for that experience.

Hi Barbara,

 It's the other BB, Bill Boehm. Nice to see that you are still preserving Native American Heritage. Here in Sonoma as a chef, also preserving traditional Hawaiian Heritage by the means of food of the islanders. Came across your web page on Facebook, which I am currently on. Check out my page if you get a chance, under William Boehm. I will be up in Murphys in Oct. for the grape stomp as a food vendor. Keep up the good work. BB
