Appalachian Heritage Food & Dance Trail

The development of a regional folklife festival and trail that accurately depicts the cultural and historical nuances of central Appalachia.  

The Heritage Food & Dance Trail will map the venues, restaurants, farms, and other cultural heritage sites that authentically represent the stories, people, places, and experiences from central Appalachia's past and present. In collaboration with partner institutions, Hindman Settlement School will host a series of asset mapping sessions at locations throughout the region to engage artisans, citizens, historians, community leaders, businesses, and others with an interest in the project; gather information and historical context; and identify individuals for further discussion during formal oral history interviews. These oral histories and asset maps will serve as the basis for the development of a trail and series of events designed to engage the public in thinking critically about their Appalachian roots and encourage further engagement in regional traditions focused on foodways and dance.
