Bannock

It’s Indigenous Awareness week at my work and I’m excited to say that they provided bannock and tea for all the staff this afternoon. The way it is presently made isn’t traditional per say but that’s just how culture evolves over time. In Indigenous areas that had a plant called “camas” they made a type of bannock. When the Scots arrived during the fur trade it became the regional variants we have now made mostly with flour. So that’s a little bit about bannock. If you want to try it in Vancouver go check out the Salmon and Bannock Bistro restaurant at 1128 West Broadway and let me know what you think! I have more stories I can share on Navajo frybread but it’ll have to wait for another day. Any other thoughts or stories anyone wants to share on #bannock

Splatsin/Enderby/Spallumcheen and Quilakwa Stop & Shop

Great day today in Splatsin territory for meetings. You might know it as Enderby but it’s real name is Splatsin, know it, learn it, use it. Had a chance to stop in to fill up on gas, grab an iced cap at Tim Horton’s and pick up a great tote and some new shades! Thirty degrees and a perfect day for a drive!
