De Pere, Wis.: The Cassandra Voss Center at St. Norbert College will team up with the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay to host Heid E. Erdrich as part of
the center’s 2018-19 GREEN: Reimagine Environment project, which aims to explore environmental concerns by tapping into the knowledge, ideas and
experiences of the community. Erdrich will lead multiple events at SNC and UWGB during the week of Nov. 12. Discussion will center around stories about
native food using home-tested recipes, alongside stories from food researchers, tribal activists, families and chefs.

Erdrich is a poet, writer and filmmaker. She is Ojibwe enrolled at Turtle Mountain and is a faculty mentor for Augsburg College’s low-residency M.F.A. in
Minneapolis. As the author of five poetry books, Erdrich performs her pieces across the country, sometimes collaborating with musicians, visual artists and
dancers.

Specific event details are as follows:

Indigenous Luncheon: Tuesday, Nov. 13, from 11 a.m-1 p.m. at the Cloud Commons on UWGB’s campus. Erdrich’s dishes will be showcased within the
common’s “all-you-can-eat” lunch. Entrance fees are $6.75 + tax per person.

Explore Indigenous Cuisine: Food Demonstration & Discussion: Wednesday, Nov. 14, from 1-2 p.m. in the Christie Theatre of the University Union on UWGB’s

the public.

“Curator of Ephemera:” A Night of Poetry: Thursday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. in the Cassandra Voss Center on SNC’s campus. Erdrich will showcase poems that
recognize how the love of technology and extraction industries on indigenous lands obscure the realities of indigenous peoples. The event will feature a live
poetry reading of “Curator of Ephemera,” a collaborative collection of poems by Erdrich that highlight lessons in Anishinaabemowin and more. Free and open
to the public.

Indigenous Innovation: Returning to and Revising Indigenous Ways and Recipes: Friday, Nov. 16, at 3:30 p.m. in Fort Howard Theater of the F. K. Bemis

to pass on knowledge about the Midwest and its bountiful resources. Free and open to the public.

The Cassandra Voss Center, built in 2013 to honor the life of St. Norbert College student Cassandra J. Voss, seeks to promote and facilitate critical
conversations and create spaces in which genuine dialogue can thrive.
