The Burt Lake Band is involved in a three-year Administration for Native Americans funded Traditional Foods Project. This project involves learning about foods from the land and incorporating them into contemporary recipes to enhance our knowledge, health and well-being. We also collect BLB recipes which include these foods as well as family stories that BLB citizens have of themselves or their loved ones fishing, hunting or harvesting traditional foods.
The photos and nutritional information on all the foods we harvest, along with the recipes and stories will be printed into a book that all BLB citizens will receive. In this way we are preserving this traditional knowledge for future generations.
