4th Annual Native American Dinner: Celebrating the Wabanaki Harvest

The Full-Flavored Food and Culture of the Northeastern Native Americans
Special Dinner #113
$45 / person, beverages, tax and gratuity additional

A Wabanaki dinner brings the food and traditions of five eastern nations to the land of the Great Lakes. The five Wabanaki tribes – Abenaki, the Penobscot, the Maliseet, the Passamaquoddy, and the Mi’kmaq—still keep many of their social traditions including eating wonderful things like roasted cow parsnip roots, grilled whitefish and cornmeal pudding.

Author and Wabanaki food expert Kerry Hardy will share stories of the land and the Swampsingers, a local women’s drum group will share several Wabanaki songs and the story of wampum and the belts and beads that saved nations and sealed friendships.
