Join us on Thursday, November 10 for a wonderful conversation about traditional Ojibwe foodways with Sandra Gokee Nevala; Ojibwe woman, mother, and traditional hunter and harvester. Sandra will talk about her experiences and knowledge of traditional foods, the equipment and processes of acquiring food for her family, and treaty rights and other considerations. Joy Schelble, UWEX Tribal Extension Educator, will briefly share how her position enhances Bad River food sovereignty by connecting youth to teachers such as Sandra.
The event will be at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, in the Mesozoic Garden Space East from 3:30 to 5:30pm. Snacks will be provided. This meeting is hosted by UW Extension’s Community Food System’s team.
