Lorraine Laiwa, director and case manager for the Indian Child and Family Preservation Project turns on the water faucet, ever so gently, so that a gentle trickle disperses through a colander filled with finely ground acorn meal. "I'm leeching the acorn now to take out the bitterness," she explains. Laiwa is preparing for the first-ever Taste of Pomo event, being held this Friday from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. at the Saturday Afternoon Club in Ukiah.
