Join a group of history-buffs in Loreto, California!
(The peninsula is the original California after all.)
The ACHóN Group
Antigua California Heritage AppreciatiON
Achón is the core wood of cactus. It's the fire-starter kindling; it is cholla - symbol
of Baja Californianos; it is the heart of the organ pipe cactus - used as a torch to light a path.
It's used in many local traditions - and it's a great symbol for this group.
To honor and share the legacy of Indigenous and Californio heritage via oral history archives, cultural gallery displays, youth involvement, and documentary film in Baja California Sur, México.
Along with its natural history, the Culture of Old California deserves a more prominent place in BCS.
You can help realize a few more pasos toward that goal.
