Native California Fall Gathering
at San Luis Reservoir State Recreation Area



The soaproot brush was not only used to brush the acorn meal in the stone mortar,
but other soaproot brushes were made into hair brushes. Dick is holding one of the soaproot brushes.
Kimberly demonstrated the use of the soaproot hair brush.


Everyone got a chance to try out the soaproot hair brush.
