College to Celebrate Native American Heritage Month with Culinary Workshop
Events and Lectures

Franklin College will celebrate Native American Heritage Month with a Native American food culinary workshop hosted virtually by Chef Nephi Craig, BHT, ACRPS, of the White Mountain Apache/Navajo Nations, on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m.

Craig will share the preparation of Native food cuisine while also educating on Native food sovereignty and its importance. 

Craig graduated from culinary school in 2000 and is considered a pioneer in the development of restorative Indigenous food practices, which utilizes place-based Indigenous food and agriculture methodology as an axis for therapeutic learning, teaching and healthy communication while revitalizing culture and wellness.

The workshop is free, but registration is required at to receive a Zoom link for accessing the event. The event is being funded by the Johnson Endowed Chair in Humanities.

On August 3, 1990, President George H. W. Bush declared the month of November as National American Indian Heritage Month, now commonly referred to as Native American Heritage Month.
