Registration Open: First Foods, Winter Series

The 1854 Treaty Authority hosts First Foods, a continuing education/public outreach winter series at our Duluth-office. The intent of this program is to educate the public on traditional and treaty reserved food staples, raising environmental awareness and encouraging the stewardship responsibilities of all who live in the Arrowhead region - a value in-line with cultural beliefs. 

To increase awareness of traditionally harvested resources, of ecological and cultural significance, we are bringing in some of our partners in education to discuss nutrition, research on diet and health, and traditional ecological knowledge, preparation and storage. Workshops on wild fruits, local fish and a food sovereignty project will provide the platform for collaborators and participants to share their knowledge.

Join us as we kick off the first of three workshops, on Tuesday March 13th, at 6pm. (Due to weather, this program was rescheduled from Tuesday February 20th.) Fond du Lac's 13 Moons program coordinator Nikki Crowe will share information on wild fruits and jams, including some ethnobotany with research on diet and diabetes and the importance of knowing how we used plants in the past. These programs are FREE, but space is limited! Register online HERE, or through the QuickLinks on the 1854 Treaty Authority website homepage.

Educators: we can sign off on CEU's to fulfill cultural integration criteria for classroom curriculum. Just ask!
