Two of today's recognized super foods--salmon & berries--were Duwamish dietary staples.  Before metal pots were introduced, the Duwamish made soups in a tightly woven basket.  The soup was boiled by placing hot river rocks in the basket.  Salmon soup was a traditional favorite.   Berries were collected in season and preserved for later use.

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, February-July.

Currently in the Duwamish Art Gallery-- Roger Fernandes:  Proof of Spirit.  New works by master Salish artist & storyteller reflect on local native culture & beliefs.

Roger Fernandes is a Native American artist whose work reflects the culture and beliefs of the Puget Salish tribes of the Pacific Northwest Coast. A member of the Lower Elwha S'Klallam Tribe, he was born and raised in Seattle and studied art at the University of Washington.
