Aboriginal dishes to grace barbecue menu

Staples of Indigenous cuisine will be featured during the campus community barbecue, Thursday, September 21, on Turtle Island Walk.

Diners will enjoy three sisters soup and fried bread along with halal beef or chicken sausages, vegetarian patties, apples, and potato chips. Three sisters soup combines corn, beans and squash in a vegetarian broth.

“We’re very excited to be able to serve these traditional foods for this year’s barbecue,” says organizer Mary-Ann Rennie, special events manager in the Office of the President. “It will really complement the First Nations themes for our dedication of Turtle Island Walk.”

The free luncheon begins at 12:30 p.m. and continues while supplies last. It is part of a day’s worth of activities to celebrate the dedication of the Turtle Island Walk campus corridor; find details on the UWindsor Facebook page.
