Just a couple of quick food items for a weekend post.
First, the 4th Annual Great Native American Cook Off is set for April 21, 6-8 p.m. at the Minneapolis American Indian Center, 1530 East Franklin Ave., Minneapolis. It is a fundraiser for the Wicoie Nandagikendan, an important Preschool Language Immersion Program to preserve the Dakota and Ojibwe languages. You can show your support by attending the event, entering a dish, sponsoring a cook, buying raffle tickets, donating raffle prizes, or volunteering.
Registration for cooks is now available on line at http://wicoienandagikendan.org/current-events/.
For more information or to help out, contact event coordinator Betty Jane Schaaf at email@example.com or call her at 651-366-9175.
