Recipe for Adelle's Corn Soup: If you have dried white lyed corn, rinse and put in a large pot filled 3/4 full of water and boil until corn is opened and soft about 1-1& 1/2 hours. Strain cooked corn but do not rinse. If using fresh or canned, use white corn and empty into soup pot. To the corn add stock made by boiling cut up pieces of pork shoulder butt (from the French), salted pork/bacon if you like and onion. Add 1-2 cans red beans if you have them. Boil gently another two hours. Season with salt.
*Omit beans and pork and add smoked whitefish to seasoned broth, cooked corn and onion. Serve immediately.
Wild Rice: Rinse and prepare rice according to package directions, using water not broth. Let cool. Add dried blueberries,cherries or strawberries and top with pure maple syrup.
*Omit fruit and syrup and add 2/3 cup to 1 lb ground venison that has been browned with onion and mushrooms. Season to taste. Add 1 cup water and heat through, adding more water if needed.
Eliza's Potato Pancakes Grate clean, raw potatoes until you have 2 cups. Press in colander to remove water and put in bowl. To potatoes add a beaten egg, 2 tablespoons flour, salt pepper and sliced onion to taste. Mix well. Add a little more flour if needed. Drop by spoonfuls onto a hot greased griddle (or frying pan) until golden brown on both sides.
Venison and Wild Onion Pie Cook 2 medium onions, sliced, in butter in cast iron skillet until soft. Remove onions. Toss 1 lb of cubed venison or round steak in a mixture of 1/4 cup flour, salt and pepper (and paprika if you aren't too worried about authenticity) to taste. Brown in skillet with more butter. Add boiling water to cover, approx 2 1/2 cups. Cover skillet; turn heat to low and cook about an hour or until meat is tender. Add 3 diced potatoes and cook 15 min. Remove from heat. Stir. Top with onions. Fit unbaked pastry over top of pan; slit vent holes with knife and bake in 450° oven 20-25 minutes.
POW WOW Etiquette: #1Dress Modestly. No Profane slogans, short-short or revealing attire and women should have their shoulders covered while dancing. #2 Spectators Stand. Grand entry is an important part of the ceremony. Please show respect by removing hats and standing while the dancers enter. #3 Listen Please. There are only certain times pictures may be taken and certain times visitors can enter the "arena" and join the dancing. Men imitate Native men's style and women imitate Native women style please. (You may ask a dancer's permission to take their picture.) #4 Never Pick Up A Fallen Feather! Alert a worker or dancer instead. #5 No Pets. The dance area is sacred. #6 Spectators Sit. The seating around the dance arena is reserved for the dancers. #7 Questions. If you have questions ask the Pow Wow director.
Lastly, it is regalia, not a costume. Please don't touch. Also finger pointing is considered bad manners.
