“Join Clint McKay, Pepperwood’s Indigenous Education Coordinator, to learn first-hand about local Indigenous food traditions centered around acorns. From harvesting to preparing, storage and cooking, Clint will walk you through some of his people’s culinary practices around the bounty of acorns grown locally in the landscape. We will also learn how to sustainably and respectfully harvest acorns, and how local indigenous people steward the land and oak trees that supply this food source. Then, we will spend time practicing hands-on each of the steps to prepare acorns to eat. This event concludes with the opportunity for everyone to taste the acorn mush we’ve prepared together.
To learn more from Clint McKay about Traditional Ecological Knowledge centered on oaks and acorns, we highly recommend watching our previously recorded webinar, Black Oaks Revealed: Their cultural significance for Indigenous Communities which can be viewed on our YouTube channel here.”
