May- Story of Our Lands

Many ongoing discussions are happening within the Spokane Tribal community focused on issues of food access and sovereignty.  The vast and unprecedented changes in landscape has brought many environmental challenges to this community.  From the Hanford nuclear waste disaster, to extensive uses of pesticides on farmlands, to the Grand Coulee dam blocking the access to fresh salmon — we face many issues when it comes to our traditional food practices and cultural continuity.

Following is a digital story that represents many key points made during our discussions.  We blended these pivotal moments with messages of hope – with the great intention that we can remember the way things were in our efforts towards igniting a movement to repair the damage made and open the way for access to foods and medicines once again.
