Book Club: Northwest Native Harvest

5 January, 2023, 6 PM-7:30 PM
Chelángen Department

Join us for a virtual discussion of "Northwest Native Harvest" by Carol Batdorf. Open to Samish citizens and their households. 

Please email RSVP@samishtribe.nsn.us to join the Book Club email list! Book Club members will receive invitations to all discussions and can choose which to attend. 

This short, easy read is an excellent overview of traditional Coast Salish cuisine and its myriad preparations. Both historic context and step-by-step instructions are provided for harvesting, preserving, and cooking traditional foods — as well as instructions to build specific fire types and cooking equipment crafted from abundant, wild resources. The annual cycle of travel and harvest culminates with traditional January feasts.
