The Native Women’s Association of Canada Launches the First Culinary and Intercultural Indigenous Experience


June 8, 2023


In collaboration with the Embassy of Mexico to Canada, The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) invites you to join us for a launch event to celebrate our first Culinary and Intercultural Indigenous Experience.

This event will kickoff a series of four culinary classes hosted by chefs Antonia Reyes and Modesta Ramírez Orozco, both traditional Indigenous cooks from Guerrero, Mexico.

The “Ancestral Mexican Culinary Classes” will be scheduled from June 12 to 16 and will showcase the ancestral customs, ancient culture, and historical traditions in the preparation of Mexican food.

Guests from NWAC and the Embassy of Mexico will attend the launch on June 12, held at the outdoor kitchen of NWAC’s Resiliency Lodge in Chelsea, Quebec.

The subsequent classes will be in-person events but will also be streamed online over Zoom and our Facebook page to allow more people to participate. The list of ingredients will be shared on the event page so that the audience can join in at home.

The culinary classes will be held on:

June 15- 16, 2023

Time: 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. EST

LOCATION: At NWAC's Headquarters: 120 Promenade du Portage.
