Making West Home brings people together to celebrate the food and stories that shape our identities as westerners and neighbors. Throughout a two-year period, the Western Folklife Center produced workshops and special events around the West that encouraged participants to draw upon their experiences to create community cookbooks, photo albums and stories.
