SALISH BOUNTY EXHIBIT VISITS HIBULB
Salish Bounty is open November 3rd, 2012 through January 2013.
Hibulb Cultural Center has partnered with the Burke Museum to host a new traveling
exhibit for 10 weeks beginning in November 2012, Salish Bounty: Traditional Native
American Foods of Puget Sound. Salish Bounty is the result of a cooperative effort
between the Burke Museum and local Coast Salish advisors to highlight the unique
and diverse diet of Coast Salish peoples of the region.
Salish Bounty illustrates the connection between the land and people. The exhibit
explores both the cultural history and values of Coast Salish communities while
simultaneously illustrating the work of local communities to revive and re-integrate
traditional foods into an every-day diet. The exhibition also gives voice to some
of the stressors that traditional food resources face in the 21st century and the
efforts of Coast Salish communities to improve upon these factors in ways that are
sustainable and that honor our lands and communities.
