While researching Native American food I didn’t realize how similar they are to South American cuisine. It comes to show that all of the indigenous tribes in the Americas are connected through food.
Today I’m excited to share five tasty indigenous recipes you can make to celebrate Native American Heritage Month.
1.This Cherokee bean bread reminds me of the Mexican tamales.
2. This Navajo fry bread looks delish!
3. Kanuch is a delicacy made out of hickory nuts.
4. Cherokee/Choctaw Indian Chestnut Bread
5. Native American Wojapi is a thick berry dish. Traditionally it wasn’t made with flour and sugar.
