The Living Breath of wǝɫǝbʔaltxʷ: Indigenous Foods Symposium
Health, Healing and Resilience
The 11th annual event of the “Living Breath of wǝɫǝbʔaltxʷ” Indigenous Foods Symposium will be held May 5-6, 2023. The event draws over 300 people from the University of Washington (UW) campus community, regional tribal and urban Indigenous communities, and throughout the U.S, Canada, Mexico, and Aotearoa, New Zealand. The symposium is a signature event for the UW Intellectual House and has become an important venue for bringing together people from diverse communities and organizations who share the same commitment to protecting Indigenous homelands and the environment. It serves to foster dialogue and build collaborative networks as Indigenous peoples strive to sustain cultural food practices and preserve healthy relationships to the land, water, and all living things.
