Can you imagine being one of the crew aboard the San Salvador when it sailed into the port of San Diego in 1542? What would you have seen? How would you have felt? Who would you have met? Right now, you have the opportunity to live history!
In connection with the building of the replica Spanish galleon, San Salvador, the Maritime Museum of San Diego welcomes guests to San Salvador Village at Spanish Landing to learn about San Diego’s history and native peoples of coastal California, featuring the Kumeyaay.
Come on down to the San Salvador Build Site this Sunday, May 6th, to meet an instructor from Kumeyaay Community College, Stan Rodriguez. Stan teaches Kumeyaay Language I & II and Kumeyaay Tools. He will be leading demonstrations and will be sharing about Kumeyaay history.
We are honored and excited to have such a wonderful guest this Sunday and welcome children and adults alike to participate in the day’s activities.
“We will be making cordage from yucca leaves and then using the cordage to make nets. The yucca leaves have been boiled and visitors will have a chance to pound the leaves, scrape them with a clam shell, and then twist the fibers to create cordage,” said Maritime Museum’s Education Program Manager, Jody Wilson.
