Native America Calling: Latest Shows
Your National Electronic Talking Circle
Friday, February 5, 2021

Every culture has its own version of bread. Among Native cultures, Pueblos in New Mexico have a distinctive loaf, Canadian First Nations in Canada have variations on bannock, and almost everyone is familiar with fry bread.

Different tribes have unique approaches to bread even though recipes can be vastly different among bakers within a tribe. Many Native versions of bread are adaptations from recipes and ingredients introduced by outsiders, but the flatbreads and loaves have become a big part of tribal food culture today.

Native America Calling will hear about corn and wheat and crusts and crumbs as we celebrate Native bread.
