Teaching Native American Foods Recipes
We like to teach about Native American food history and native cuisine during the month of November. The month of November is Native American Heritage Month. We live near the Seneca Nation Reservation and we have quite a few Seneca students each year. This is how we honor them:
- Make fry bread! This recipe is something that is dear to many Native American ancestors. It is actually not a native food but was created after the native population was forced onto reservations and given food rations. The people created this delicious food with the measly rations they were portioned. It can be topped like a taco with meat, cheese, beans, sour cream or it can be offered as a sweet treat and topped with honey and powdered sugar!
