Share this event:

Our team of indigenous chefs will offer a diverse palate of the flavors of indigenous resilience in this 7 course meal, which honors the traditional trade routes and life sustaining wild and cultivated foods of many different indigenous communities of North America. In addition to the culinary  treasures featured, each course will be paired with ethnobotanical storytelling of the unique regional Indigenous foods and stories and songs from the Warm Springs Tribe of Oregon.

Diners will come away feeling a renewed and profound respect for the earth and the important role indigenous ancestral stewards played in the health of their people and the land they depended upon. They will become steeped in the flavors of resilience, with the deeply storied foods of this Turtle Island, which is nourishing a diverse and unique movement in contemporary Native American food culture.

Chef M. Karlos Baca founded the Taste of Native Cuisine, an Indigenous Chefs collective in 2011, and in connection with the Southern Ute Cultural Center & Museum, as a means to reintroduce and revitalize Indigenous Foodways through education, foraging, and indigenous menu tastings. His work has been featured on Zagat Foodways: 10 Meals That Define America publications such as this feature in  Indian Country Today Media Network.  His work spans teaching about Indigenous Food Sovereignty and traditional foraging and agricultural techniques to youth across Indian Country to working on land issues affecting tribes in the Four Corners region.
