Museum presentation relives family's dinner with Sitting Bull
Trickster Gallery presentation looks at immigrant family's experience
More than a century ago, Sitting Bull was an unexpected dinner guest of a Dakota Territory family. An upcoming presentation at the Trickster Cultural Center in Schaumburg takes a closer look at this experience.
Food historian and author Sharon Hudgins will present "When Sitting Bull Came to Dinner, An Immigrant Homesteader's Experience" at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 24, at the Trickster Cultural Center, 190 S. Roselle Road, Schaumburg.
Young Elizabeth Dell, a talented cook, prepared Sunday dinner for her family and unexpected guests, members of the Lakota tribe, including Chief Sitting Bull. They enjoyed dessert first.
Hudgins reveals the documented lives of the Dell family, set in the Dakota Territory more than a century ago. Hear more about her family at the Trickster Cultural Center, 190 S. Roselle Road, Schaumburg, in person or via Zoom.
After Hudgins' talk, a short tour of the museum takes place.
