Last week the Native American Longhouse and surrounding tribesÂ held the 12th annual Salmon Bake. The Salmon Bake is anÂ opportunity for students to experience the Native American, Alaskan Native and Hawaiian Natives’ cultures through dance, food, a large fish sculpture and a traditional salmon bake. Students lined up in the MU quad to learn about the cultures while enjoying free lunch and performances. More than 90 students and community members volunteered their time to help facilitate the event.
The Salmon Bake is just one of many events that one of the four cultural centers hold each year. OSU is home to six centers, including the Native American Longhouse, Asian and Pacific Cultural Center, Centro Cultural CÃ©sar ChÃ¡vez, Lonnie B. Harris Black Cultural Center,Â Pride Center, and the Women’s Center.
