1) My favorite part of native cooking with Kim Marcus was the activity in which we rock painted. Everyone was painting quietly with respect. It seemed especially sacred, as Kim Marcus said it was. I had fun painting my rock, adding the designs that I felt most connected to.
2) I had several jobs, but my favorite job was skinning the manzanita seeds. It was my favorite because you could also eat the skin from the seed and it was very tasty. It was beneficial to the nutritious diet because you could make a healthy tea from the skins. The seeds could also be used to make rattles!
