Indigenous Noms: Cakes and Treats from Turtle Island

by Faith G. Harper, PhD, LPC-S, ACS, ACN 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!
