Nuu-chah-nulth Traditional Foods Reference Guide

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

Like other First Nations people around the world, Nuu-chah-nulth Nations on Canada's west coast once had an intimate relationship with the food we ate. Traditional teachings taught our ancestors to respect all living things and never waste the precious life provided by the Creator for our sustenance. In 2006, Nuu-chah-nulth chiefs asked for resources sharing the benefits of seafood for communities suffering from obesity, diabetes, and other food-related illnesses. They asked for information on how to prepare and preserve wild foods the way our ancestors did. The result is the Nuu-chah-nulth Traditional Foods Toolkit, a series made up of six booklets. The Reference Guide is the overall guide to this series, and includes listings about common Nuu-chah-nulth foods (and their Nuu-chah-nulth words), traditional harvesting tools, and harvesting protocol, along with activities for communities and classrooms.
