“Foods of the First Americans” display

Library display pictureIn celebration of Native American Heritage Month, Rentschler Library has created a display titled “Foods of the First Americans.” It highlights some of the foodstuffs that Native Americans cultivated (maize, beans, and sunflowers) and created (fry bread, succotash).  Stop by to get a recipe for Three Sisters soup, named for the so-called “three sisters” beans, squash and corn. Check out some books on Native American history or novels by famous Native American authors like Sherman Alexie or Louise Erdrich. The display will be up for the entire month of November.
