A Taste of Native America explores the food and related culture of native people throughout Washington. Local rivers, forests and prairies provided a varied and nutritious diet. Fishing, hunting, gathering, and food preparation remain important skills handed down through generations. Ceremony and ritual underscore the importance of food to native life. This traveling exhibit from the Washington State Historical Society’s Traveling Exhibit Service will be supplemented with examples of native foods and related items from the Clark County Historical Museum’s collection. A special installation by award winning Wasco, Yakima, and Warm Springs artist Lillian Pitt is featured.
