It is rare for the general public to get a genuine, first person glimpse into the family history of some of the original inhabitants of what we now know as San Diego County. Procopio is very proud to provide you just such an opportunity later this month.
As part of Procopio’s ongoing sponsorship of the San Diego History Center’s Nyaiwait Chiwayp/ In Our Words: Kumeyaay series of talks and presentations, we encourage your attendance at the next program in the series occurring on January 24, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at the San Diego History Center located in Balboa Park (Casa Del Prado, 1649 El Prado, Suite 3, San Diego). The presentation will be provided by David Toler, author of Blood of the Band, An Ipai Family Story, which relates the journey of a Kumeyaay-Ipai family from origin to present day. The programs in this series have proven very popular and fill up fast, so we strongly encourage you to RSVP. The cost for the programs, which benefits the San Diego History Center, is $10.
“Blood of the Band is meant as an acknowledgment of the stamina, resilience, and perseverance of our region’s native peoples, not only during prehistoric times, but also in the face of more recent adversities, and, ultimately, successes.” (Dedication from Blood of the Band). A link to Mr. Toler’s book can be found here. We look forward to seeing you at the January 24 presentation of Blood of the Band.
