The Northwest Indian College Traditional Plants and Foods Program offers classes, train the trainer workshops and educational resources to build tribal community health and sovereignty. In collaboration with elders and culture keepers, staff are developing the “Gift of N.W. Native Foods Teaching Box.” This educational tool is a cedar bentwood box with twelve culturally and nutritionally important Salish preserved foods. The box also includes teaching cards, a booklet with activities, a DVD and a board game on harvesting native foods throughout the seasons. Themes include sustainable harvesting, stewardship, cultural preservation and wild food safety. The box can be used in many teaching contexts including conferences, community gatherings and classroom settings for grades 6 through adult. The Burke Museum will host a train-the-trainer workshop in spring of 2014 and the box will be available for checkout at tribal museums. In this presentation Traditional Plants Educator Elise Krohn will share some of the highlights of the box including how it is raising awareness about the precious wild foods of the Salish Sea region.
