MILWAUKEE (Oct. 27, 2016) – Celebrating the culture and contributions of Native Americans is a priority at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. During Native American Heritage Month in November, the property will feature a number of special events and activities where guests can experience Native American art, history, culture, food and more.

“We are so pleased to celebrate our Native American culture with the community,” Potawatomi Hotel & Casino CEO and General Manager Hartford Shegonee said. “Sharing our traditions is very important to the Forest County Potawatomi, and we hope that everyone has an opportunity to partake in these events and activities.”

On Nov. 15, our annual Native American Heritage Dinner will be held at Dream Dance Steak. The property will welcome Chef Nephi Craig, a well-known White Mountain Apache & Navajo Chef, who will share his passion for Restorative Indigenous Native American foods. The dinner will include a five-course menu with wine pairings for $85, not including tax or gratuity.

Also, the property will sponsor the Milwaukee Art Museum’s MAM After Dark event on Nov. 18, which will highlight Native American culture. Guests will experience Native American songs, dancing and a special activity table. The event is from 8 p.m. until midnight. It is free to attend for Milwaukee Art Museum members and $12 for non-members.

Additionally, throughout the month, Native American singers and dancers will entertain guests throughout the community at a number of different events, including:

  • Saturday, Nov. 5, in the BMO Harris Bradley Center Atrium preceding the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Sacramento Kings game.
  • Noon and 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Marcus Majestic Theater in Waukesha.
