It was a fun Second Saturday with Barbara Drake (Tongva) and the California Turtle & Tortoise Club Inland Empire Chapter ... and a couple friends.
The Serrano Indian word for tortoise = Qerperc
The Cahuilla Indian word for tortoise = I'yeel
Our friends from the California Turtle & Tortoise Club
Barbara Drake uses a tortoise shell to tell about the 13 moons on a tortoise's back: a calendar.
Fun crafts for all ages ... a felt tortoise, and a pinhole drawing
