CSUSM Indian Garden
Right here at Cal State San Marcos we have an Indian Garden with Native plants. Our class walked across campus and witness a ceremony being given by Erasto Camacena. Students from other classes brought offerings to the garden, such as bananas and apples, and Erasto went through them and explained to us which each meant in the ritual. He also took buring sage and walked around letting the smoke hit everyone as part of the ceremony. Afterwards, students helped adding plants to the garden. It was a good experience because I had no idea that we had something like this on our very own campus. Here are some of my photos from that day.
