Buffalo Butchering Workshop @ Great Lakes Intertribal Food Summit

We are excited to feature a full traditional buffalo butchering workshop led by Arlo and Lisa Iron Cloud at this year’s Great Lakes Intertribal Food Summit held at the Meskwaki Nation in Tama, Iowa from May 9-13.  Starting with a ceremony and respectful kill in the field on Wednesday morning, May 9th, this workshop will cover all aspects of traditional butchering and use of the animal over the following days, with meat going onto the event menu.

Part of the intention behind this workshop is reconnecting to traditional, full-use approaches that respect the gifts provided by our four-legged relatives.  By conducting the kill in the field, the animal will be placed under less stress.  The hands-on nature of this workshop will give participants a much better understanding and appreciation of from where our meat comes.
