      Sexii, or Horqaniiv (boiling water in English), was the site of the 5th
      Southern California Indian Storytelling Festival and 1st Oral
      Traditions/Language Symposium. Actually, most people know this place as Palm
      Springs. Sexii is the Cahuilla name for this place, while Horqaniiv is the
      Serrano equivalent. Horqaniiv literally means "it will boil." It never
      boiled, but perhaps heating to a nice summer.

      Elders Jane Dumas (Kumeyaay), Pauline Murillo (Cahuilla / Serrano), and
      Julia Parker (Pomo / Coast Miwok), were responsible for this in large part
      with their presence and superb presentations. The knitted their stories with
      personal experiences and observations, making their stories treasures to be
      remembered. It was wonderful to hear Jane tell her stories first in
      Kumeyaay, then in English. Her profound knowledge of plants and their uses
      had us spellbound.
