Celebrating Indigenous Culture, Free Library’s Culinary Literacy Center – Oct 11

Posted by Free Library of Philadelphia on October 4, 2022

Native people from the six nations that make up the Haudenosaunee Confederacy have been growing, processing, and cooking Haudenosaunee White Corn, or flour corn, for hundreds of years. Join us in celebration of Indigenous People’s Day to learn about these processes and culinary applications from the owner of Tomahawks Indigenous Taco and Cornbread Shop.

This program will be a literal hands-on class showcasing the making, cooking, and eating of traditional Haudenosaunee boiled cornbread—a round, boiled bread that is dense and moist, and made with nixtamalized corn. This will also provide a foundation for conversation on Haudenosaunee culture in general, food sovereignty, and what it means to decolonize our diets.

All proceeds from ticket sales go towards supporting the Culinary Literacy’s Center programs for youth, neighborhood engagement, and English language learning. Free tickets are available for SNAP eligible families and for anyone who cannot afford the fee right now but would still like to participate. Please email kitchen@freelibrary.org for more information.

Date and Time: Tuesday, October 11, 2022, 6:00 PM

Location: The Culinary Literacy Center at Parkway Central Library, 1901 Vine Street, 4th Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19103
