Teejop & Beyond – Tom Weso’s Survival Food Memoir: Menominee Places and Stories

Madison Public Library and Ho-Chunk Gaming Madison welcome a variety of Native artists, storytellers, and community leaders for a series of programs celebrating Indigenous people in and beyond Teejop (pronounced day-JOPE, meaning Four Lakes, or Madison). Beginning on Indigenous Peoples’ Day each year, Native folks from different nations lead programs highlighting both traditional and contemporary practices, stories, and community relationships.

The Menominee author Tom Weso’s wife and copy editor Denise Low, a writer herself, will speak about about his book, Good Seeds: A Menominee Indian Food Memoir(link is external)–its humor, good stories, and places important to this northern Wisconsin tribal nation.

This event will be hosted virtually through Zoom. The link to this program will be sent to you by email when you sign up. Zoom is a free video platform, and you can watch on a browser, or through the free mobile app for iOS(link is external) or Android(link is external). You can also call in with a phone to attend with audio only.
