BEMIDJI — The Bemidji Public Library and Beltrami County Historical Society continue with a joint program series titled "Niimi’idiwag (They Dance)," an exploration of the history of the Anishinaabe powwow.

The next program, "All About Fry Bread" will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 23, at Harmony Natural Foods, 302 Irvine Ave. NW.

Registration is limited to the first 10 participants, register by emailing  galloa@krls.org . This event will also be livestreamed on the Bemidji Public Library and Beltrami County Historical Society Facebook pages. 

"While fry bread is a common food at Minnesota powwows, and a part of our shared culture and history, it is not a traditional Anishinaabe food," a release said. "Join Tana Morgan-Robinson to learn about the history and cultural relevance of the staple of powwows and learn to make it."
