t Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, July 15, 2009 15B ARTS and ENTER0000AINMENT Tour explores tribal trails, silver rails, wagon wheels History and culture buffs are invited Saturday, July 25, to take a tour titled Tribal Trails, Wagon Wheels and Pi- oneer Parties. The tour is being organized by the Taylorsville-based Sierra Institute Center of Forestry. Participants will follow an old wagon road through scenic though seldom-seen parts of Plumas County from Beckwourth to Genesee. Tour guides will be Dan E1- liott, archeologist and tribal relations program manager with the U.S. Forest Service, and Farrell Cunningham, a local Mountain Maidu histo- rian and one of the few re- maining speakers of the Maidu language. The history of the state of California is an entertaining story of immigration. People came to California for almost 200 years to discover new op- portunities. Plumas County attractions were gold, lumber and adventure. While immigrants were just arriving, the California Indi- ans had already lived in the state for thousands of years. Participants will learn about the history and culture of the Mountain Maidu, the California Indians who lived across a large area of the Sier- ra Nevada and Cascades for thousand of years before im- migrants settled in the area. In addition, the more recent history of early immigrants will be explored, like the noto- rious Jim Beckwourth, an African American explorer and settler of the West. Other tour highlights will include a visit to Clover Val- ley, where topics explored in- clude historical dairy, graz- ing, and lumber practices in the valley, as well as restora- tion work done on Red Clover Creek in the last two decades. An old logging railroad is another highlight, and partic- ipants will learn about his- toric bridges and passes that were once decorated with sil- ver rails. Both Elliott and Cunning- ham are well versed in the various histories and will en- tertain participants with some interesting and enjoy- able stories. Space is limited; call early to reserve a place. Morning refreshments, lunch and transportation will be provided as part of the tour, which begins at 8 a.m. and concludes by 4 p.m. The cost will be $45 per per- son, and there are a limited number of scholarships avail- able to local residents. Those interested in the tour or other programs at the Sierra Institute Center of Forestry may visit sierrain- stitute.us, or call 284-1022. Scenic, yet seldom seen areas of Plumas County will be among the highlights of an upcoming tour along the Beckwourth- Genesee Road.

Website: yearone-movie.com "Food Inc." plays Sunday-Tuesday, July 26-28 Drawing on Eric Schloss- er's "Fast Food Nation" and Michael Pollan's "The Omni- vore's Dilemma," director Robert Kenner's documentary explores the food industry's detrimental effects on our health and environment. Kenner presents an unflatter- ing commentary on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of the USDA and FDA. The documentary proposes that our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health as well as the liveli- hood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment.
