The Churro and the Navajo:

One Family’s Journey to Save the Sacred Sheep

Sunday, September 16, 1PM to 2:30PM


The Navajo elders cried when they saw Sharon Begay bringing the sacred sheep back to the reservation. They thought the “old time” sheep were gone forever. As children, they weaved the fleece and lived on the mutton. They also witnessed government forces slaughter their families’ Churro to prevent over-grazing.

This presentation features photographs and anecdotes documenting one Navajo family’s journey to help save the Churro, and in the process saving the family and Navajo culture.

Seed Saving

Seed saving is an ancient and important skill allowing people to develop stronger plants
that are better adapted, more diverse, and vital in local food production.

Our panel of experts will discuss the history and process of seed saving. They will explain why fall planting is so important and share some of the secrets of the best varieties.
The ABQ-BernCo Seed Library will be on hand to check out seed packs and answer questions.

Bring your saved seeds to share and join this growing tradition-honoring practice.
