The New Native Foods Program and Demonstration is designed for two types of applications: 1. Powwow, museum, and living history events that showcase several historical Native American skills and lifeways (storytelling, flintknapping, basketmaking, etc.) and 2. Museums and cultural centers with guest demonstrators or artist-in-residence programs. With this program, your event can present a comprehensive display and interactive demonstration solely devoted to Native Northeastern foods, diets, nutrition, and the culture that surrounds it. Learn more about the three parts of this program by clicking on the photos below.
The Native Foods Program and Demonstration is an on-going presentation and demonstration. The only demonstration that should be scheduled is hot stone boiling, which can be scheduled 2-3 times a day (hot stone boiling should be scheduled as it takes time to heat and reheat rocks). The price of this program is $250 - $280 per day with full camp set-up (discount available with no camp), with discounts for each day after 2 consecutive days (plus travel). Questions should be addressed to Jessica Diemer-Eaton at email@example.com
We also offer historical parks/museums, agricultural educational sites, and Maple syrup producers with interpretive public programs and festivals our Native American Maple Sugaring Program. Click here to view some photos of this program.
While we demonstrate traditional and historic methods of cooking and food preservation for the general public, we also live our daily lives with growing, gathering, and processing many of these same foods for home use. For example, we may demonstrate traditional Native style maple sugaring, but we also produce enough maple syrup for our family every year. We consider our lifestyle of part-time gardening, gathering, and hunting to be beneficial in our understanding of traditional foods. After all, when we are not at work teaching about these foods, we are at home producing and consuming them.
