Berryville VA -- NBC On-Air Reporter for WHAG-TV/Your4State NBC affiliate Merris Badcock, Winchester Star newspaper print Maggie and Photographer Jeff Taylor covered the frybread and three sisters event at Boyd's Nest Family Restaurant today.
Local Native American Indians shared their personal frybread recipes with Boyd’s Nest Restaurant owner Kim Ragland Monday, May 4 as part of a preview event for “The Gathering.”
Kim’s hand at frybread is expected to be a huge success since Kim is a hobby “food anthropologist.” Kim is also developing a “Three Sister’s Stew” to help feed the dancers and drummers participating in the “Harvest Dance” or pow-wow like event that takes place during “The Gathering” this fall Oct. 30 - Nov. 1.
As a matter of fact, Kim is planting the seed, to grow the food, to make the stew, to feed the people.
“The Gathering” event planners are preparing for 200-300 dancers in Native American regalia and 4,000-6,000 people to attend what could be an annual multicultural 3-day event at the Clarke County Fairgrounds.
