Speaker Series – “Indigenous Food Systems”

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

Admission is $5.00 per person. Children under 16 are admitted free. Presentation begins at 2:00 pm in the Community School Library located at 2100 Sollans Rd. Please enter through the Natural History Centre door.

This events is part of the Thursdays Expert Speakers Series.
