NYT Food Stuff: Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation markets own olive oil

"A number of American Indian tribes produce food products, usually items like wild rice, pemmican and fry-bread mixes. The Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, of the Capay Valley in Northern California, has gone farther. Last year, the tribe — which has a casino and grows various crops, like wine grapes — harvested and pressed enough arbequina olives to bottle and sell the oil, which the state has certified as extra virgin."
