We are honored to partner again this November with the Indigenous Food Network to present a series of free cooking and lecture workshops. Local members of Native-led organizations Dream of Wild Health, Division of Indian Work, Indigenous Food Lab, Department of Indian Work, NATIFS and more will share their ancestral knowledge while exploring the nutritional and cultural significance of recipes using traditional ingredients. Instructors will share their expertise on sourcing, sustainability, and environmental impacts on local and native-grown foods.
Classes will be filmed as a part of our commitment to archive our Indigenous Foods Class Series programming to make these classes accessible for our communities.
The focus of these videos will be on the instructors and the preparation, but may include images of participants. By participating in these classes, attendees give permission to use their likeness in Seward Co-op‘s publications or promotional materials, or in other similar ways at Seward Co-op’s discretion.
To get ready for this year’s series, try this recipe from Derek Nicholas, Nutrition Program Coordinator at Division of Indian Work, for Manoomin (wild rice) with Walnuts and Cranberries. You can also view more recipes and videos of past classes here.
