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.

COOK-OUT:
Enjoy cooking demonstration, lunch and a salmon tasting! THANK YOU to Muckleshoot Seafood Products for donating Muckleshoot Fisher-harvested Coho Salmon! (Lunch will include vegan options).

Roger Fernandes, Lower Elwha Klallam, Story-teller, Artist, Native historian: Salish Salmon Story-telling

The American Wine Revival celebrates the artisanal wineries that have revolutionized the wine industry steering the country's wine conversation away from large scale industrial wines towards small hand crafted low input and natural wines.


The last five to ten years have seen a dynamic shift in both viticultural practices towards more sustainable, organic and Biodynamic farming and a return to more natural and minimal intervention winemaking that focuses on terroir and true varietal expression over more industrialized technique that favored power and uniformity. The American Wine Revival seeks to celebrate the artisanal wineries that have revolutionized the wine industry and have made a significant impact with restaurants and retailers throughout the country away from large scale industrial wines towards small hand crafted low input and natural wines. 2017
