The Adventure Continues… Preserving the Past
Huell takes a tour of the little, quaint town of Locke, founded and settled by the Chinese on the Sacramento River Delta; then he hears ancient Cahuilla Indian bird songs sung by members of the Cahuilla tribe, and participates in a threshing bee and antique engine show in Vista, CA, featuring old farm vehicles and machinery.
This episode of California’s Gold has a little bit of everything! California’s history has been enriched by many different cultures, and here are three very good examples — the hard-working Chinese immigrants who built a thriving community on the California Delta; the native Cahuilla Indians and their traditional songs; and modern-day men and women who preserve and celebrate antique steam-operated farming equipment. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I have!
