POWELL, Wyoming — The public is invited to join Northwest College in a celebration of Mexican Independence Day at 6 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 16.

The program, held in the Intercultural House at 565 College Drive, gets underway with student presentations in Spanish and English about the history of the day that includes the Grito de Dolores (Cry of Dolores), the event marking the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence. In addition, students will share information about how this day is celebrated in Mexico and about the Mexican flag and national anthem.

Also planned are a flag raising and a demonstration of how to make pozole, a popular Mexican dish. This traditional soup is a pre-Columbian meal comprised chiefly of hominy, which once had ritual significance. Today it usually includes pork and is topped with foods like radishes, cabbage, onions and lime juice.

This is one of the programs in NWC’s celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month.

Admission is free.
