Friday, June 28, 2024 — The Menu: Insights into Alaska Native foodways, wellness in the garden, and ag in the classroom

Iñupiaq and Yup’ik writer Laureli Ivanoff illuminating Alaska Native foodways is recognized with a 2024 James Beard Media Award. Dakota gardener Teresa Peterson’s new book Perennial Ceremony: Lessons and Gifts from a Dakota Garden is a tour through the seasons and a story about how gardening, and resulting recipes, affect everyday life, family, healing, and wellness. And a pilot program by the U.S. Bureau of Indian Education at a New Mexico high school puts agriculture into the curriculum. That’s all on The Menu on Native America Calling, a special feature hosted and produced by Andi Murphy.
