About the Event

As a follow-up to our fifth annual 'Day of Botanical Art' this past February,BAGSC is honored to present "Saging the World," a short, award-winning documentary  about the movement to protect the White Sage (Salvia apiana), which only occurs in southern California and northern Baja California, Mexico.

This online presentation is offered free to BAGSC members and the public. It will NOT be recorded.

Indigenous communities have tended a relationship with white sage for thousands of generations. Today, poachers are stealing metric tons of this plant from the wild to supply international demand. The documentary film Saging the World spotlights the ecological and cultural issues intertwined with white sage, centering on the voices of Native advocates who have long protected and cherished this plant.

Following the documentary, we will have a discussion by Rose Ramirez, one of the directors/producers of the film, and Ami Admire, Executive Director of ‘ataaxum Pomkwaan, For the People.
