Pine Nut Roasting

Sep 12, 2020, 10:00 am

Come for a demonstration by local members of the Paiute Tribe on how to roast Pine Nuts! The pine nut harvests are fickle from year-to-year, varying in location and wealth of nuts. This is because pine nuts take 18 months to three years to mature, and often result from good rains. Come learn about Paiute lifeways, learn how to grow your own seeds and make a pine cone craft. Only family units at each station/table at a time. Disinfecting will occur between activities.

This event is part of the Water|Ways Museum on Main Street exhibition, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Utah Humanities, touring in partnership with the Fremont Indian State Park & Museum. All Water|Ways events are part of Think Water Utah, a statewide collaboration and conversation on the critical topic of water presented by Utah Humanities and its partners. For more information, see

The Museum is excited to welcome you! The Governor has mandated that everyone in state facilities wear a mask. Please come prepared to wear a mask inside our museum. Activities will accommodate social distancing. Thank you!
