Learn about, prepare and share bannock together!
Join Elder Zippie Nochasak and curator, historian and sewer Augatnaaq Eccles for an afternoon of sharing stories, recipes and making bannock! While its cultural and political significance constantly evolves, bannock (or “palauga” as it is known among many Inuit communities) has been a beloved food staple for generations.
Sharing bannock provides comfort and fosters a sense of community, and so we invite you to this unique event where you can learn about, prepare and taste an array of delectable ways this cherished dish can be enjoyed.
Admission is free and everyone is welcome! Bannock, drinks and light refreshments will be provided.
“Bannock and Belonging” is generously supported by Inuit Futures in Arts Leadership: The Pilimmaksarniq / Pijariuqsarniq Project.
