Cooking Demonstration with Grayhawk Perkins

On November 12, 2020, the Intercultural Diversity Center and the Women Gender & Resource Center hosted a live cooking demonstration featuring Grayhawk Perkins to learn about indigenous cooking and how it relates to culture and gender. New Orleans-born Grayhawk Perkins is a well-known cultural figure in Louisiana. He works as an educator, historian, and a musician, teaching music, history, writing, and environmental studies to students from Pre-K to college level.
