Eelgrass "Candy of the Sea"

ByUu-a-thluk (Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council Fisheries Department)

One of the most important seagrasses on the planet, eelgrass was also an important local food for coastal First Nations like the Nuu-chah-nulth. In this new booklet (part of a series about traditional, local foods), learn how to recognize native eelgrass, how to harvest it for food, and how to help it thrive to provide a basis for marine wildlife. The booklet also includes activities relating to eelgrass habitat, food security, and traditional foods, along with selections from the Nuu-chah-nulth language. The Nuu-chah-nulth Traditional Foods Toolkit promotes the wisdom of Nuu-chah-nulth elders by recording and sharing their experiences, language, and knowledge regarding traditional foods. The information in these booklets promotes food sovereignty and security, encouraging healthy, sustainable communities for current and future generations. Proceeds from the sale of this booklet go towards education and training programs for children and others in Nuu-chah-nulth communities.
