Reclaiming Indigenous Food and Health

Fireweed at the base of the Tetons. Fireweed tea is one of the foods that may be provided through the Reclaiming Indigenous Food and Health project.

The project “Reclaiming Indigenous Food and Health” is a project to look at the impacts of eating a diet that is 50% traditional Shoshone foods from January-March of 2020. For this time period, up to 20 individuals may participate in 3 health screenings, keeping daily food journals, and enjoying traditional Shoshone food (such as bison stew, chokecherry gravy, wild root biscuits, pine nuts, and wild teas).

The project is a partnership between the Restoring Shoshone Ancestral Food Gathering group and the University of Wyoming.

If you are interested in being a participant, please complete this screening form before January 11, 2020. To be eligible to participate, you must be 18 or older, an enrolled member of the Eastern Shoshone or Shoshone Bannock tribes, and able to attend a health screening on January 16, 17, OR 18.
