We are teaching how to make Indian tacos, Native American fry bread and wojapi!

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity! These recipes are normally passed on from generation to generation, but we are bringing it to the Kansas City Museum. We hope you will join us for a night of storytelling Indian tacos and wojapi. You will also be taking home your own wojapi and recipe.
