Nov. 13 dining event part of Indian Center’s November events
The Mid-America All-Indian Center is providing a unique way for visitors to experience and learn about American Indian culture in November. The Indian Center is hosting a Share Our Food dining event from 5:30-8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 13. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, and can be purchased by contacting the Indian Center at 316-350-3345 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Through the program, guests will learn the history of traditional American Indian dishes and have the chance to try the food themselves.
While the staples of American Indian food are generally corn, beans and squash, there is more to the history and tradition of the food than meets the eye. Share Our Food is an opportunity for guests to learn about American Indian culture in a brand-new way. The menu for the evening includes Northern Style Corn Soup, Tohono O’odham Squash, Ojibwa Wild Rice and many other traditional dishes. The full menu is available on www.TheIndianCenter.org.
In addition to trying the food, guests at Share Our Food will enjoy a presentation by Catrina Red Willow (Oglala Sioux/Lakota), free Museum admission and receive the recipes for all the dishes served that evening.
The Indian Center is also offering art classes in November, providing hands-on opportunities to learn more about American Indian culture.
