Seventh Generation Supper: Swinomish First Foods and Community Health as Indicators of Climate Change
Tuesday, November 28, 2017
Anacortes Senior Center, 1701 22nd St.
Larry Campbell and Jamie Donatuto of the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community speak on “Swinomish First Foods and Community Health as Indicators of Climate Change.”
Dr. Jamie Donatuto is a Community Environmental Health Analyst for the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community. Larry Campbell is the Community Health Specialist in the Swinomish Community Environmental Health Program, and a distinguished Swinomish tribal elder. Together, they co-manage the Swinomish Community Environmental Health Program.
Their project is to develop and implement a Swinomish community health climate change impact assessment based on simple descriptive scales to evaluate the connections between community health and natural resources. How is community health effected as nearshore habitats change, impacting the availability of traditional foods? Results of their study will be integrated into results into the Swinomish Climate Change Impact Assessment and Action Plan.
