Dance Expo and Frybread Sale Oct. 29

October 25, 2010

What could be better on a crisp, fall day than to hear the deep, resonant sound of drums, to see a live performance of Native American dance, and to taste some authentic, Native American fry bread? Come to the Dance Expo and Frybread Sale on the Lory Student Plaza on Friday, Oct. 29!

Drummers accompany dancers during the 2009 Pow Wow, an annual event during Native American Heritage Month at CSU. The 2010 Pow Wow is set for Saturday, Oct. 30.

Friday, Oct. 29
11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Lory Student Center Plaza

As a kickoff to Native American Heritage month here at CSU, you are invited to the Native American Song and Dance Exposition featuring traditional song and dance of various tribes. Indian frybread will be sold during the performance to raise monies for the Pow Wow on Oct. 30. 

Native American Heritage Month is held during November, and is nationally-recognized as a month to celebrate Native Americans — past, present, and future. 

The Native American Cultural Center provides awareness to the campus through movies, lectures, and other activities during this time.

Frybread recipe

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 4 cups shortening for frying

Combine flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir in 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water. Knead until soft but not sticky. Shape dough into balls about 3 inches in diameter. Flatten into patties 1/2 inch thick, and make a small hole in the center of each patty.

Fry one at a time in 1 inch of hot shortening, turning to brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Serve with honey, jelly, powdered sugar, or chili beans and other favorite taco toppings.
