NATIVE AMERICAN BUTCHERING TECHNIQUES TOPIC AT MHS
If you are interested in Native American history or just want to learn new ways of turning your successful hunt into meat for the table, the Montana Historical Society has a program for you.
On Thursday (Nov, 17) t 6:30 p.m. at MHS Sheridan historian and interpreter Billy Maxwell will present “Old Butchering Habits” used by the first inhabitants of what is now known as Montana.
“Routines practiced just 50 to 500 years ago are not all forgotten,” Maxwell said. “Come see some of the tricks that can alter your dining and food saving.”
The program is in conjunction with the current MHS exhibit “Big Game, Big Stories: Montana’s Hunting Heritage.” Maxwell said jokingly that his talk “will enhance your game, roadkill, or domestic critter use.”
The program is free and open to the public.
