Native Food Engineering. Traditional Duwamish food engineering practices such as the use of fish weirs and management of clam beds and prairie lands increased food production while stewarding resources. The shared knowledge of food engineering practices and tools--along with the concepts of seasonality and sustainability--are part of this traditional system.
