Indigenous Noms: Cakes and Treats from Turtle Island

by Faith G. Harper Author

Dr. Faith's favorite Indigenous comfort foods and stories about why they're important to her and her community, with an especial focus on Oklahoma and Texas regional specialties. Get a history lesson with your frybread, wow your friends with Choctaw Persimmon Cake or Chickasaw Molasses Bread, have your kids help you fill a batch of Empanadas de Camote, and revel in the awesomeness that are grape dumplings. Roasted pumpkin provides a healthier, grain-free sweet treat, and masa harina cookies are what you'll be bringing to all the parties from now on. Includes dairy-free and gluten-free options for just about everything!
