Our Traditional Food and Nutrition workshop covers soil fertility, crop choice(s) for our bioregion, diabetes prevention, and the cultural connections of indigenous peoples with foods. Holding the workshop at the Intertribal Friendship House greatly helps in getting out to communities particularly at risk of dietary problems. The forced removal of traditional diets has had real impacts on the reservations.

We were particularly gifted in traditional foods -- including salmon and buffalo!

Special thanks to Cesar Gonzalez and Nikol Trujillo who have stewarded Intertribal's garden development.

If you're around the Eastlake neighborhood (of Oakland) some Saturday morning with a need to pull weeds, drop on by!
