Native America Calling
October 21, 2016 @ 6:00 am - 7:00 am
It’s a staple of Native American culture. Frybread is so ubiquitous it’s become a symbol of Native cuisine. These greasy treats show up at festivities, gatherings, fundraisers and holiday events. But there’s another way of looking at it: frybread ingredients come not from tradition, but from the reservation rations and commodity goods provided by the federal government. And the high fat count and low nutrient content makes frybread a factor in obesity and high rates of diabetes in our Native communities. What do you think about frybread?
