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

The wiwinu, or huckleberry, is a traditional food stuff for the Indigenous Warm Springs tribe of north-central Oregon. Every August, its customers set out in search of huckleberry bushes to pick, harvesting a bounty for the community’s yearly feast that celebrates the fruit. Wiwinu (Huckleberries), by Brutis Baez, a winner of Eddie Bauer’s A single Outside Film Grant, tells the tale of wiwinu and why the berry has remained important for Warm Springs persons these days.
