Taste Traditions of Wisconsin: Stories of Juliette Magill Kinzie, Frontier Adventurer (Sold Out)
Tuesday, March 06, 2012 6:30–9 pm
Celebrate Women's History Month with a theatrical presentation and delicious dinner reminiscent of the fur trade era. Meet Juliette Magill Kinzie, adapted and performed by Betsey Means of WomanLore: Performing Women in History. She was an elegant Eastern girl who traveled to the Western frontier as the bride of John Kinzie, Indian Agent at Portage in 1830. The character of Juliette Kinzie will share tales from her book "Wau-Bun: the Early Day in the Northwest," describing her life among the voyageurs, trappers and native people of the fur trade era.
A woman of admirable courage and humor, Mrs. Kinzie's spirit continued through the generations to her granddaughter, Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts.
Taste Traditions of Wisconsin is a taste-and-talk series that explores the rich culinary history, delicious indigenous ingredients and remarkable foodways of Wisconsin.
