VADZAIH – cooking caribou from antler to hoof

PCMB supports ethical and respectful harvesting. Traditionally, all parts of a harvested caribou were used. While all parts of the caribou are still used today, not everyone remembers how to prepare them.

PCMB sponsored this cookbook with the intention of supporting the traditional no-waste approach, and to bridge the gap between the past and the present. It explores traditional ways of preparing and using caribou. Starting with traditional recipes, we have worked with cooks from the Gwich’in community of Old Crow to explore old and new ways of preparing caribou. It’s our way of showing respect and sharing how the caribou continue to provide for people across the north – and our hope that it will continue to provide for many generations into the future.
