A lunchtime display in the Bush Campus Center on Thursday helped celebrate Native American History Month, including food that honors the area’s Indigenous culture. Alumnus Joseph M. Haber (’11, radiography) catered from his Tomahawks taco restaurant in Mifflinburg, which honors his Mohawk roots both in its decor and by using such ingredients as ground venison, red beans, smoked cranberries, cider-braised turkey, corn and roasted squash. The display included information about “The Three Sisters,” the agricultural intertwining of squash, corn and beans; as well as Penn College’s land acknowledgement.
