The Native Ways student club at Northwest College will be hosting its annual Buffalo Feast on Thursday, November 17 at 6 p.m. in the Yellowstone Building Conference Center. The feast includes smoked bison brisket, roasted red potatoes, seasonal roasted vegetables, roasted beet salad with goat cheese mousse, Three Sisters Soup, Bannock bread and berry soup.
This year’s performer is Christian Wallowing Bull, an Indigenous singer-songwriter from Wind River Reservation. As a member of the Northern Arapaho Tribe, he uses his heart as a storyteller to “represent his own indigenous roots and to bridge perspective and healing to the lives of those indigenous as well as non-indigenous.” He is the 2021 winner of the Wyoming Singer-Songwriter’s competition in Ten Sleep.
