MANUELA AGUIAR Kumeyaay Paipai Pottery Documentry

Manuela Aguiar sits in front of her home on the top of a mountain in the Indigenous Community of Santa Catarina, Baja California, Mexico. Manuela, the Aguiar family, is well known for their Native American pottery, basket weaving, doll making, medicinal plant and traditional knowledge, and oral history storytelling.

Note: A pile of yuca stocks, used to fuel the burn pit (lower left) during her pottery firing, is pictured in this panoramic view of Manuela's mountain top home.

Manuela was featured in Paul D. Campell's book, "Survival Skills of Native California."
