P O W E L L, Wyoming — Five Northwest College students from Africa will share food, music, photos, dance and other cultural insights from their homelands Wednesday, Nov. 16, beginning at 7 p.m. in the Yellowstone Building Conference Center.

Cameroon, Ethiopia, Morocco, Rwanda, Tunisia and the Democratic Republic of Congo are among the African nations represented in the program.

Students will prepare traditional dishes from their countries which included Tajine, a Tunisian slow-cooked stew of meats and vegetables; samosas, Ethiopian fried pastries stuffed with spiced fillings; as well as a customary chicken and rice meal from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

As the second-largest and second-most-populous continent in the world, Africa covers about 11.7 million square miles and is home to more than 1.2 billion people.
