The Summer Huckleberry Harvest Is an Important Tradition for This Indigenous Tribe in Oregon

The wiwinu, or huckleberry, is a traditional food for the Indigenous Warm Springs tribe of north-central Oregon. Each August, its associates set out in research of huckleberry bushes to choose, harvesting a bounty for the community’s annual feast that celebrates the fruit. Wiwinu (Huckleberries), by Brutis Baez, a winner of Eddie Bauer’s One particular Exterior Film Grant, tells the story of wiwinu and why the berry has remained vital for Warm Springs people these days.
