Connecting to Gitxsan Food and Traditions

Gitanyow Independent School used a Healthy Schools BC First Nations School Grant during the 2019-2020 school year to offer students more opportunities to learn and connect with Gitxsan food and traditions. One initiative they undertook was to incorporate more traditional foods into the student lunch program. Principal Stefanie Foster says that some of the students don’t like the usual lunch meals, such as pizza, but that all of the students love the traditional meals, especially the salmon and oolicans!
