Event description

Description

Join Camosun College in conjunction with the Songhees Nation in an evening of indigenous food, stories and celebration of what the region has to offer in food, wine and cocktails.

About Songhees Nation

We are from the Lekwungen Nation, often called the Songhees, though it was others who gave that name to us.

For time immemorial we have been the first peoples of what is now known as the southern part of Vancouver Island. We have always had a strong oral history, but recognize the newer generations rely increasingly on the written word. The pages that follow are from us to you. The Lekwungen worldview inspires and shapes our approach to everyday life such that it impacts every facet of our lives.

There is a fine balance in that the Lekwungen ways define our worldview – but are also defined by our worldview. Our approach to naming, witnessing, cedar bark collection, creative endeavours and everything else that makes up a life are deeply informed by our values. That all-encompassing approach serves, importantly, to reinforce those same values.

About Camosun College Hospitality

Kilburn and her colleagues in the college's Anthropology, Culinary Arts and Hospitality Managementdepartments are partnering with the Songhees Nation on March 29 host an evening of indigenous cuisine, culture and cooking for reconciliation with a focus on food sovereignty. “We want people to understand that the locally sourced foods in these traditional territories are really an embodiment of the connection with the land,” says Kilburn. “We'll be physically going out to connect with the landscape and forage many of the ingredients that we'll serve on people's plates.”
