Instructions for Our Love, A performance

Amber Stucke

John Preckwinkle, Cahuilla Bird Singer & Spoken Cahuilla

Michelle Morreo & Felicita Payton, Cahuilla Language Translators

Larrea tridentata, or commonly known as the Creosote bush, is the most abundant plant in the Mojave Desert. Certain forms of this plant are considered to be some of the oldest living organisms on Earth dating back as far as 11,700 years old. Instructions for Our Love is a vocal piece spoken in English and read in Cahuilla by John Preckwinkle, a traditional Cahuilla Bird Singer, as an honoring to the Creosote. The instructions intend to reconnect the sound of the language back to the land. As Cahuilla people have lived and continue to live in the surrounding area of Wonder Valley for over 400 years. The language is endangered but still persists.
