One Straw: The Salmon Project
January 28 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm$10 – $50
Join Kwa’tle’maht, Holly Ann Higgins and Xwu’p’a’lich, Barb Higgins in an opportunity to spend a hands-on day in the kitchen with indigenous elders, learning, canning, chopping, and chatting. Roll up your sleeves, because at the end of this, you will have salmon on your hands, on your shirt, and hopefully canned in neat stacks of jars that will help feed our community. Together we will learn to pressure can proteins safely, the differences between varieties of salmon, and spiritual and salmon traditions of the local land, waters and people.
This day is about story-telling, connecting to the local and sacred traditions of calling the salmon home, and giving gratitude. It’s about reconciliation – gently building relationships, bridges and mutual respect, growing to a place where we not only *see* each other, but truly honour what each is bringing to the table. In this case, quite literally the kitchen table.
Lunch provided (salmon of course). Very limited space available.
