Effigy Mounds National Monument celebrated Multi-Cultural Day on August 29th by holding an ethnic food sampling in the visitor center break room at lunchtime.

Employees from all departments participated, including management, maintenance, cultural resources, volunteers, and interpretation. Ethnic dishes included German potato salad, Cuban black bean and Schaubel Zup (German Mennonite) soups, German Runze, Norwegian lefse, German brats and sauerkraut, Irish cream cake and German apple kuchen.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed all the different foods, some told stories of their childhood memories at holiday times, and all left with an appreciation of everyone’s ancestral foods.
