Native American Corn and Rice Harvest Dinner Menu

Noongwa e-Anishinaabemjig is working again this year with Zingerman's Roadhouse to host a Native American Corn and Wild Rice Harvest Dinner. The dinner will take place Tuesday September 28, 2010 and will feature special guest, author Jim Northrup.

University of Michigan Ojibwe language teachers, Howard Kimewon and Margaret Noori will talk about traditional Native American lifeways which means "following the seasons, preparing, collecting, storing and preserving the harvest to use across the year. The menu for this Native American dinner, crafted by James Beard-nominated Chef Alex Young will explore two harvests that possess cultural significance for the Native American tradition, rice and corn."
