The event will be opened by UVic Elders in Residence, and the pit cook will be run by Cheryl Bryce with volunteer help from students and faculty from the Department of Anthropology. While listening to stories and teachings of the Elders, attendees can witness the creation of the pit and the layering of foods and cooking materials in the ground. When the food is ready, it will be shared with participants for tasting.
