The third annual Art of Place presentation series continues Friday with “Traditional and Contemporary Gathering of Herring Eggs,” led by Roby Littlefield. The event runs from 10 a.m. to noon in the Univeristy of Alaska Southeast Glacier View Room on the UAS campus.
UAS Assistant Professor Ernestine Hayes founded the series and this season presentations have focused on traditional and contemporary methods of gathering and preparing food. The first session in January, led by Ed and Percy Kunz, covered preservation of salmon and halibut. In February, Libby Watanbe discussed the gathering and use of Native plants, such as devil’s club. Following this week’s presentation on herring eggs, there will be one more event in the series, “Putting it All Together: Edible Art of Place,” led by Helen Watkins and Gerry Williams, on April 26. This final event of the season will include a potluck of traditional and contemporary foods.
The series is free, and all are welcome.
Funding for 2013 Edible Art of Place is provided by BP and ConocoPhillips.
