Mariah Gladstone gives a free demonstration where she prepares foods using her family recipes and other indigenous recipes in this online-only event on Tuesday, January 9 starting at 6:30 pm. Pre-registration is required. 

Gladstone, Piikuni (Blackfeet) and Tsalagi (Cherokee), grew up in Northwest Montana on and near the Blackfeet Reservation. She graduated from Columbia University with a degree in Environmental Engineering and returned home where she began her work on food advocacy.

She developed Indigikitchen, an online cooking platform, to revitalize and re-imagine Native foods. The name is a combination of the words Indigenous, Digital, and Kitchen. Gladstone also has been recognized as a Champion for Change by the Center for Native American Youth and a Dreamstarter by the Running Strong for American Indian Youth foundation.

She is currently a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Leader, a MIT Solve Indigenous Communities Fellow, and a Luce Indigenous Knowledge Fellow. Mariah completed her Master’s Degree at SUNY – ESF through the Center for Native Peoples and the Environment.

Indigikitchen has been featured in the CBC News, the Billings Gazette, the High Country News, and others. Gladstone gave a TEDx Talk in Bozeman in 2017, as well, on ” Healing from trauma through traditional foodways.” 

This program is part of the Montana State Library Montana Library Network programming series. People can register for the event online at https://mt-gov.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_gO-VClNqSdWrxO2XDr-7mw#/registration.
