Muckleshoot Food Sovereignty

The Muckleshoot Food Sovereignty Project is helping to increase understanding of Native foods and build community food security by exploring the Muckleshoot Tribe's food assets and access to local, healthy and traditional foods. 

The program includes:

  • community engagement through local discussions and monthly articles in the tribal newspaper
  • hands-on workshops on traditional food principles and a modern approach to a traditional foods diet
  • traditional foods feasts featuring seasonal foods and harvesting of local traditional foods
  • cultural sharing across the generations
