NMU CNAS DIRECTOR APRIL LINDALA.

Thanks to April Lindala, Director of the Center for Native American Studies at Northern Michigan University, for coming in to the Sunny studios to talk about the upcoming First Nations Food Taster.  Not only did her visit make us hungry, it took our minds off of the relentless political claptrap cluttering the airwaves during this election season.

This event, presented by the Native American Student Association, features live entertainment, special prizes, and of course, great traditional and contemporary Native dishes!  To listen to the interview with the effervescent April, please click “HERE“.  For more information about the First Nations Food Taster and the Center for Native American Studies, click “HERE“.
