The White Mountain Apache Tribe's Nohwike' Bgowa Museum will collaborate with representatives from the four Western Apache Tribes to create "Nest'n (That Which Has Ripened)," an exhibition of traditional Western Apache diets. Building on decades-long work of Western Apache knowledge-holders and their research partners, Nest'n will illustrate traditional Apache foodways; the complex relationships among Apache people, their lands, and all beings that share those lands; social organization; and ways of knowing that are all interconnected with traditional foods. Panel installations will also be exhibited at the partnering tribes' cultural centers or governmental offices. An intended outcome of the project is to encourage an estimated 30,000 citizens of the four Western Apache Tribes and other visitors to Nest'n to adapt their diets in positive ways while learning more about traditional foods and the natural environment around them.
