Ask Me About My Foodways

Southwest Folklife Alliance Inc. hosts “Ask Me About My Foodways,” a participatory public project that engages youth, community partners, and the public in activities that share the culinary practices of a people, region, or historical period. The event, which is part of the annual Tucson Meet Yourself Folklife Festival’s Cultural Kitchen, is also a powerful means to override cultural stereotypes and define our sense of place in community. In partnership with City High School, students prepare their family’s traditional dishes on site at the Festival; the YWCA will act as project partner and will host an oral history workshop so participants can document their own personal “foodway” stories.
