Description

The exhibit explores traditional California Indian food sources, their extensive and sophisticated system of environmental knowledge underlying use of food resources, the importance and continuing use of native foods in contemporary California Indian communities and examines contemporary issues of food localization, sustainability, nutrition and environmental health through an alternative, older lens.

Exhibit Description

Featuring foods important in the lives of Native Californians including fish, shellfish, seaweed, meat, vegetables, berries, fruits, flowers, nuts, seeds, and salt, this delicious look at Native foods is based on the Heyday Books publication Seaweed, Salmon, and Manzanita Cider: A California Indian Feast by Margaret Dubin and Sara-Larus Tolley (2008), a delightful and sometimes surprising compendium of Native American cuisine.
