Learn about Mexica lifeways using linocut stamps and create your own Codex inspired by the Florentine Codex.
Native California Plants
Navigate the Getty Center gardens using a plant guide illustrated by Weshoyot Alvitre and learn about preserving and protecting white sage (Latin: Salvia apiana; Tongva: Kasili).
Carmina Escobar, Micaela Tobin and Jacqueline Wilson perform artist Raven Chacon’s score For Zitkála Šá (2017–2020), written for and dedicated to Indigenous female composers and musicians.
