Lyn Risling (Karuk/Yurok/Hupa) and Analisa Tripp (Karuk) are introducing the world to Native American California culture through the pages of a children’s book, “A is for Acorn: A California Indian ABC.” Each letter of the English alphabet is connected to an aspect of Native culture, like B for basket—featuring designs similar to many of the tribes that call California home. Animals, plants and other cultural objects also get the highlight in this playful look at the ABC’s. We invite you to join us as we visit the book’s creators on our October Book of the Month feature.
