Native Americans were not only experts at hunting wild game, but they also were excellent farmers. Their foods have always been creative, different and flavorful. They were known to cultivate crops in high, arid desert regions that required elaborate irrigation systems. Wild plants were also used abundantly to supplement the diet. Nothing was wasted, even the roots were often ground into powders to be used breads and other foods.
Included in this book is a large collection of recipes that have been chosen from many tribes located throughout the United States and Canada. Also included are a collection of stories both related to food, which offer life lessons and tell us of a past that has been somewhat forgotten. Some recipes are tradition while others have been redeveloped over the years to include new ways of cooking and include new spices and ingredients. The recipes in this collection have been chosen in a way to stay true to the Native experience.
