Art of Place continues with presentation on gathering and use of Native plants

Posted: February 21, 2013 - 1:05am

The Third Annual Art of Place presentation series founded by UAS Assistant Professor Ernestine Hayes continues this week with “Edible Art of Place: Traditional and Contemporary Gathering and Use of Native Plants” by Libby Watanabe. The presentation will take place in the UAS Glacier View Room in the Egan Library wing at UAS, from 10 a.m. to noon, with refreshments and conversation following.

Watanabe teaches Survey of Alaska Native Nutrition for UAA and is one of only three Alaska Native registered and licensed dieticians in Alaska. She will discuss gathering and preparation of Devils Club, examples of which will be available for hands-on participation, and will offer a presentation on gathering, drying, and preparing Hudson Bay tea in infusions and in home-made jelly.

Attendees should feel free to bring their own examples, stories, and questions on local plants to this event, the second in this season’s series. The first lecture, “Traditional and Contemporary Preservation of Salmon and Halibut” on Jan. 25, was presented by Ed and Percy Kunz.

Two more lectures will follow in March and April.
