Family and Consumer Sciences

Family
and Consumer Sciences Education programs strengthen the relationship
between individuals, families, and communities.  Workshops are offered
featuring the latest research-based food preservation methods and safe
handling of
traditional native foods, low sugar jams and jellies, low salt pickling, and game meat and fish
Nutrition and Lifeskills Education for both adults and youth offer
opportunities to help people improve their personal lives and the
well-being of their families by dealing with issues and concerns that
face today’s tribal members.  The Family and Consumer Sciences program
also works closely with Tribal programs dealing with health issues
impacting Native Americans.
