Mitsitam Native Foods Cafe



Mitsitam means Let's eat! in the Native language of the Delaware and Piscataway peoples

Mitsitam means Let's eat! in the Native language of the Delaware and Piscataway peoples. The museum's Mitsitam Native Foods Cafe enhances the museum experience by providing visitors the opportunity to enjoy the indigenous cuisines of the Americas and to explore the history of Native foods.

The Cafe features Native foods found throughout the Western Hemisphere, including the Northern Woodlands, South America, the Northwest Coast, Meso America and the Great Plains. Each of the five food stations depicts regional lifeways related to cooking techniques, ingredients, and flavors found in both traditional and contemporary dishes. Selections include authentic Native foods such as traditional fry bread and corn totopos as well as contemporary items with a Native American twist-think buffalo burgers!

Mitsitam Cafe Catering by Restaurant Associates is one of the premier full-service caterers in the DC area and available for your next event at the National Museum of the American Indian.
