About this event

Sharon Hudgins, an award-winning food historian and cookbook author, delves

into her family history and uncovers the documented life of the Dells on the

last frontier in the 1800s.

In the late 1800s the Dell family made a life herding cattle on the sweeping grassy

plains in the Dakota Territory. Young Elizabeth (Halweg) Dell had a knack for

cooking and baking. She and her husband sometimes hosted members of the

Lakota tribe (which included famed Sitting Bull) for dinner. Her guests loved her

desserts so much that they often insisted on eating them before the main dish.

After the program, there will be a tour of the Trickster Cultural Center highlighting the Field Museum Native American artifacts.
