OnStage @ APL presents Cooking for Sitting Bull

Thursday, October 26, 2023

Listen to acclaimed food writer and historian Sharon Hudgins recount stories of her pioneer great grandmother Elizabeth Dell, a woman who also cooked for Sitting Bull. Learn about the recipes and her great grandmother's evolving friendship with the Sioux.

Dakota Territory pioneer Elizabeth Dell was a friend of the Sioux. During certain battles Sitting Bull protected her. Elizabeth’s husband George had a peace pipe of Sitting Bull’s and the two men smoked it together on several occasions. One of Elizabeth’s prized possessions was a photo of Sitting Bull that the renowned Hunkpapa Sioux leader had signed for her.

An award-winning author and journalist who has lived in 10 countries, Sharon Hudgins is a former university professor. She has also been a lecturer on numerous tours for National Geographic, Smithsonian, Viking Cruises, and other companies, including a recent cruise around the British Isles to the Scottish Highlands and the Shetland and Orkney Islands.  Sharon is the author of The Other Side of Russia: A Slice of Life in Siberia and the Russian Far East, and T-Bone Whacks and Caviar Snacks: Cooking with Two Texans in Siberia.
