Description

Fry Bread is both at once nothing more than fried dough, and also the representation of decades of perseverance against oppression. Fry Bread rose out of internment camps of forcibly displaced tribes in the mid-1800s. Ripped from their lands and their food resources, tribes were forced to survive on government issued rations of flour, salt and oil. In this hands-on workshop, Tyson Sampson & Charles Taylor of the Bigwitch Indian Wisdom Initiative, will share the complicated and fraught history of a food that is both delicious and comforting, while also holding within its golden exterior 150+ years of the painful narrative of indigenous tribes across the country.
