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

The wiwinu, or huckleberry, is a regular foods for the Indigenous Warm Springs tribe of north-central Oregon. Just about every August, its customers set out in research of huckleberry bushes to decide, harvesting a bounty for the community’s annual feast that celebrates the fruit. Wiwinu (Huckleberries), by Brutis Baez, a winner of Eddie Bauer’s 1 Outdoors Film Grant, tells the story of wiwinu and why the berry has remained vital for Warm Springs people these days.
