What better way to learn about different cultures than with food?

Are you a Native artist, storyteller, or community leader looking to get involved in the community? The Teejop and Beyond program at Madison Public Library gives Native locals a platform to present a program during a celebration of Native nations.

Programs will kick off on Indigenous People’s Day to celebrate people in and beyond Teejop — pronounced Day-JOPE, meaning “Four Lakes” or “Madison” — and their traditions, stories, and community connections.

Want to apply but need some inspiration? Here are a few programs that were presented in past years:

  • Family history writing workshop
  • Milkweed soup cooking demo and sampling celebration
  • Multigenerational basket making workshop

Selected presenters will receive $150 per program, plus supplies reimbursement.
Submit your application by Sunday, July 30.
