ELDER MEAT GIVEAWAY
February 10 @ 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM PST
Chay-yii-ne Svn’ Wa’sr-‘vsh-t’i (Elder Meat Giveaway)
Wednesday, February 10th 10am-2pm
Xaa-wan’-k’wvt Hall Community Center
Reservation Deadline for Bags: Monday, February 8th
The Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation will be hosting an elder meat distribution. This year’s bags will include chis-chu svn’ (elk meat) and lhuk svn’ (fish meat). Typically bags contain a variety of other meat sourced from our local Fairs; however, this source was unavailable to be secured in 2020, due to COVID-19. Despite limited sources of meat the Tribe is still hosting a distribution.
Tribal staff and community members under the guidance of the Natural Resources Department salvage and process chis-chu throughout the year from a variety of opportunistic sources. In addition, through the Rowdy Creek Fish Hatchery, the Tribe for the first time has salvaged and processed lhuk for consumption. The goal of these efforts is to increase tribal citizens’ access to traditional foods.
All tribal elders (tribal citizens ≥55yrs) are eligible to receive a bag this year. Bags will be available for pickup on Wednesday, February 10th, from 10am-2pm at Xaa-wan’-k’wvt Hall Community Center. If you are an interested tribal elder, You must reserve your bag no later than Monday February 8th. Bags must be picked up at the designated time and place. Limited local deliveries may be accommodated upon request.
To reserve your bag or for more information contact Cynthia Ford Habitat & Wildlife Program, Natural Resources Department @ (707) 487-9255 x1701 or email@example.com
