Native eats
Get a taste of traditional Native American foods

 Try beer, moose and deer meat straight from the Granite State’s woods at A Taste of Native American Cuisine, an annual event returning to Gilford Community Church on Saturday, Nov. 18, 5 to 7 p.m. The event, which is open to the public, also includes traditional side dishes and desserts. 

“It’s basically a sampling dinner and we’ll be serving everything buffet style,” said Mark Richardson, chair of the Board of Directors for the New Hampshire Intertribal Native American Council, which puts on the event as a fundraiser. “The thought was that someone can come in and go down the line and get a lot of different things to try.”
Council Vice Chief Angie Moore said most of the featured meat is relied upon by hunters, who this year will be providing bear, moose, elk, buffalo and venison, or deer meat. Fish like salmon and stuffed trout with rice will also be available.
“We’ll take an elk roast and a buffalo roast and we’ll cook them and segment them into small cubes to serve as samples,” Richardson said.
Along with all the meat offerings, there will be plenty of sides and desserts as well. 
Moore said visitors can also try a dish called Three Sisters, which is made up of corn, beans and squash, as well as wild rice and a corn casserole. Corn bread and fry bread will be served with wojapi, a traditional Native American thick berry sauce.
“I guess I would equate [wojapi] to a kind of strawberry or blueberry jelly,” Richardson said. “You’d typically put that on an Indian fry bread.”
Desserts will include an Indian bread pudding, pies such as pine nut, and cookies. Cider and peppermint tea will be served as well. Richardson said a children’s menu is also expected to be available.
Just before and during the dinner, Native American flute players and drummers will be performing as ambiance. Moore said council member Kim White Feather will have a display of Native American artifacts set up.
Following the dinner will be a silent auction and a regular auction made up of Native American items.
“[What we get] all depends on what is donated to us at the council,” Moore said. “We’ve had artwork, dreamcatchers, regalia, beadworks and other stuff.”
Proceeds from the dinner benefit the council’s scholarship fund. Richardson said a similar event called the Spring Fling is in the planning stages for next year.
