August 11th: “Indigenous Food Systems”
Sharon Niscak will share traditional ecological wisdom with a focus on the traditional plants and foods that are part of our regional environment. Indigenous food systems provided a variety by understanding the seasonal cycles and by utilizing horizontal and vertical ecological niches and regional trade. Food, clothing, shelter and technological needs required an understanding of the environment.
Sharon’s Indigenous ancestry is rooted in southwestern BC. Some of her most enjoyable early memories were of medicine gathering and berry picking with her grandmother
