Swinomish Tribe of Washington state revives ancient clam garden tradition

Editor’s note: Due to a scheduling change, this segment did not air on Nov. 14, 2022, as planned.

A clam garden is a traditional, Indigenous way of boosting shellfish production. It’s believed that it hasn’t been practiced in more than a century.
