Seaweed, Salmon, and Manzanita Cider: A California Indian Feast Exhibition

January 26 – March 23, 2014

Saturdays & Sundays:  12:00pm – 4:00pm


Orange County Agricultural & Nikkei Heritage Museum at the Fullerton Arboretum

Filled with historic and contemporary photographs, baskets and other artifacts, food specimens, memoirs, and recipes, Seaweed, Salmon, and Manzanita Cider: A California Indian Feast is a new statewide traveling exhibition from the Grace Hudson Museum and Exhibit Envoy.

The exhibit, which opened at the Fullerton Arboretum Jan. 26, 2014, features foods important in the lives of Native Californians including fish, shellfish, seaweed, meat, vegetables, berries, fruits, flowers, nuts, seeds, and salt. This delicious look at Native foods is a delightful and sometimes startling compendium of Native American cuisine (the most authentic local food around).

Exhibition Themes:

  • Celebrates traditional California Indian food sources
  • Showcases the extensive and sophisticated system of environmental knowledge underlying California Indian use of food resources
  • Emphasizes the importance and continuing use of native foods in contemporary California Indian communities
  • Examines contemporary issues of food localization, sustainability, nutrition and environmental health through an alternative, older lens


Open to the Public Jan. 26 – March 23, 2014
