A packed room inside a church filled with conversation, food and laughs was the scene Thursday evening at the Harvest Dinner celebration.

The first ever Harvest Dinner was held in honor of Native American Heritage Month at Colorado State University coming to a close. The event featured foods grown and raised in the community.

“Tribes traditionally celebrated harvest and it is a way to preserve that tradition,” said Tyrone Smith, the director of the Native American Culture Center on campus.

Colorado State students, faculty and Fort Collins community members were all in attendance.

“It’s wonderful to see members from CSU and members from the community come together,” said Ron Hall, an attendee at the dinner.

Sopphira Oddo, ethnic studies senior, and Victoria Marrozzo, international soil and crops senior, helped harvest the crops used for the dinner, which are all indigenous to Colorado.

“It was quite a journey,” Marrozzo said. “I think it is an important thing learning about our food.”
