The NUTR 435 Experimental Foods class invites you to join their final presentation and product tasting – Indigenous Food Product Development with the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes. This new course integrates science, culture, and participatory research in developing a value-added, culturally-representative Native food product with tribal partners. The students in this class include hospitality management, sustainable food systems, and chemical engineering majors. We work with the Native Fish Keepers in developing a product using the invasive lake trout to help balance the ecosystem of the Flathead Lake. The project also aims to promote fish consumption and exploring Native culinary traditions by the CSKT members. Your attendance will be meaningful encouragement to the students and bring valuable input to guide this project’s future development.
