Stew Fest warms the heart, builds community

Hearty stews and traditional frybread will tempt campus tastebuds as part of a longstanding campus tradition known as Stew Fest.

This free event takes place from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9, at the Native American Cultural Center outdoor patio area. The menu features frybread and three types of stew prepared by Sodexo—mutton, green chili pork and vegetable/vegetarian.

A tradition for more than a decade, Stew Fest is a way to build community and introduce the campus to traditional Native foods.

“Stew Fest is a time to enjoy our Native American hospitality by sampling popular southwestern Native American food,” said Sharon Doctor, assistant director for Native American Student Services, which is co-sponsoring the event with the Native American Cultural Center.

All students, faculty and staff are welcome with an NAU ID, and the event also will count toward True Blue NAU Rewards points.
