Celebrate the Solstice - Manidoo Giizisoons Feast in Minneapolis!


On Friday, December 18, Honor the Earth and MN Interfaith Power & Light invite you to Spirit House Ministry in Minneapolis for our 2nd annual Manidoo Giizisoons Feast (Feast of the Little Spirit Moon), a 4-course indigenous feast by the Sioux Chef featuring Native foods in "pre-contact" recipes, prepared using the traditional ways of our ancestors.  Join us to celebrate the winter solstice and the abundance of the north country, and honor the sacred waters of our region.  The feast will be themed to the current moon of the Anishinaabe calendar, the Manidoo Giizisoons (Little Spirit Moon).   

Native craft fair and silent auction begin at 4:00pm.  Social hour and traditional music begin at 5:30pm. Dinner will be served at 6:30pm. 

Tickets are $65 per person, or $440 for a table of 8 seats (a great deal!).   All proceeds support campaigns to protect our land, water, and health in the face of extreme extraction.


Chef Sean Sherman, aka The Sioux Chef, is an Oglala Lakota Sioux from Pine Ridge.  Sean has spent the past 25 years harvesting the wisdom of our ancestors and perfecting the art of “pre-contact” Native American cuisine.   He is a leader of the resurgent indigenous foods movement and is turning heads all over the globe with his revival of the old ways.  He also runs the Tatanka food truck in the Twin Cities, is opening a restaurant and learning center, and is publishing a cookbook.   We are honored to have him as our featured chef.  

Please join us to celebrate the winter solstice and this land we all love, with a succulent 4-course feast.  Be sure to come early for our Native craft fair. This holiday season, support local Indigenous artisans. Keep it simple, keep it local.
