NW Garden of Eden. The Duwamish traditional calendar is tied to the abundant resources that are available at different times throughout the year. The months are often named after the most abundant resources available at that time. The concepts of seasonality and sustainability are part of this traditional system.

Guest Speaker: Ken Workman is a great-great-great grandson of Chief Seattle. He is on the Duwamish Tribal Council and a member of the Duwamish Canoe Family. Ken works to preserve the traditional language—Lushootseed. He will share the Duwamish months in both English and Lushootseed.

The Duwamish Native Food Program is sponsored by the DUWAMISH RIVER OPPORTUNITY FUND (DROF): Seattle Department of Neighborhoods & 4Culture. Bi-monthly program, 2nd & 4th Sundays, June-July.
