Salish Bounty

Published: November 23, 2012, Author: JayTaber

In Salish Bounty — a traveling food history exhibit of the Tulalip Tribes and the Burke Museum — Coast Salish food traditions that create good health are juxtaposed with the commodity foods and fast foods that supplanted the native diet of the Northwest tribes that inhabit the territory between Seattle and Vancouver and the Pacific Ocean. As noted in the article at Indian Country Today, the new exhibit looks at food to explain the history of Northwest tribes and to imagine a future that revives the Coast Salish food traditions that support the good health of families and communities. More information on Coast Salish traditional plants and foods is available through Northwest Indian College.
