Growing in the Desert: The History & Culture of the Tohono O’odham with Jacelle Ramon-Sauberan

March 8, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Many Arizonans call the Sonoran Desert and its striking landscapes home. Long before our urban centers and city lights lit up the dark desert skies, the Tohono O’odham were cultivating and shaping the land with abundant agriculture—from squash and beans to corn and cotton. For generations they passed down their rich knowledge and culture grown from their connection to the desert. Join us for a program with Jacelle Ramon-Sauberan as she shares her knowledge about the history and culture of her people, the Tohono O’odham.

This event is cohosted by Senior Services Inc. This is an in-person event.
