Anna Diaz seasons part of the deer rib before cooking
MTS students were engaged in learning cultural knowledge through being taught how to debone & butcher a black-tail deer on campus! Councilman Louie Ungaro came to the school to teach students how to cut, prepare, and cook deer. Students were taught the traditional ecological knowledge of our animals and the gifts they give us. Leslie LaFountaine, who is the Sustainability Food Systems Educator at MTS, showed students how to cook over an open fire.
Thank you to everyone who made this opportunity possible for our students at MTS. The ability for our students to be taught traditional knowledge right on campus is because of the effort of many people.
