Review for Sustainable Northwest, Portland, OR, USA
I am a tribal member of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs of Oregon. I am curious on what kind of sustainable you do for protecting the herbs, huckleberries and other edible foods that are growing on the Reservations. I know, we are called "stewards of the land" where we are chosen by the Elders to go dig our roots, and pick the Huckleberry that are part of our "sacred foods" to all the Native People of the NW tribes. We have four sacred foods that are seasonal. First, salmon, second is the deer/elk and then, our roots and huckleberries as well as the chokecherries. These are what helps us heal, that is chosen for us to provide for the winter. And that this is what is nutritional, has proteins, and vitamins, and a lot more healthy to our Indian people.
