Wild Salmon Cook-out: Stand with Northwest Tribes
Cook-Out: Enjoy cooking demonstration, lunch and a salmon tasting!
Speakers: Fish cooks and Valerie Segrest, Muckleshoot Food Sovereignty Project
Join us for a salmon cook-out to stop genetically engineered fish! Community Alliance for Global Justice is collaborating with the Muckleshoot Food Sovereignty Project and the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance to host a community gathering to learn more about how GE salmon threatens a cultural and ecological keystone species in our region. We will especially highlight Northwest tribal relationships to salmon, and how biotech companies are threatening treaty rights. In 2014, the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians passed a resolution opposing the introduction of GE salmon, and the Quinault Tribe is one of 12 plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the FDA for approving AquaBounty's GE salmon.
We look forward to sparking convivial conversation and community engagement around this important environmental, food justice, and Indigenous Rights issue. We are pleased to host this event at the UW Intellectual House, whose traditional name - wǝɫǝbʔaltxʷ – comes from the Luhshootseed language and is phonetically pronounced “wah-sheb-altuh.”
This event is FREE and open to the public. PLEASE RSVP: Email firstname.lastname@example.org
