WINDOW ROCK — As Char Kruger slowly adds corn meal to the blue corn mush on the stove, stirring it clockwise, people begin asking questions. Should they roast corn meal before making the blue corn mush? Do they add sugar? How long should it cook?

On Saturday, Kruger gave a presentation on how to make blue corn mush at the Navajo Nation Museum as part of activities to encourage cultural teachings.

Blue corn mush is a traditional Navajo food. Kruger said this is the perfect time to teach how to make it because it is a healing food.
