Speaker Bio:

My name is Maegan Lopez, I am from the Tohono O’odham Nation, located in Southwest Arizona. I was brought up in a village called Wejij Oidag (“New Fields”) which is about 90 miles from Tucson, AZ and a mile from the U.S./Mexico border.  I’m a mother, daughter and sister. I currently work at Mission Garden, my role at Mission Garden has given me the opportunity to work with wonderful plants and people, and I am on the Board of Old Pueblo Archeology Center, which helps implement policies for the organization.
