Overview

Native Recipes from the Grandmothers by Wisdomkeeper

It is traditional for First Nation’s people to give thanks, and acknowledge our relationship, to the plants, animals, birds and creatures from the water, to show respect for their giving their spirits in order for others to survive. Traditionally elders say prayers to commemorate this sacrifice at a feast gathering.

During these gatherings the people share their recipes and often demonstrate the preparation and cooking of food. Elders would pass on ancient food gathering and preparation guides to the younger members of the tribe.

Because of this tradition of passing on the wisdom of the tribe from generation to generation, First Nation’s people became increasingly skilled in the art of drying and preparing foods, herbs and berries with each passing generation. The Medicine men and women of the tribes were gifted healers trained by generations of ancestors in the art of using the gifts of Mother Earth to heal the people of their tribes. The recipes in this collection were shared with me by Grandmothers from many cultural backgrounds.

About the Author

Twenty five years ago I left behind a broken life and began my travels on the red road. Through many journeys and hours and hours listening to the stories of the elders, both Native and non-Native I began to gather their stories and traditions and from the meals shared with them I recorded their personal favorites into a collection that could be enjoyed by future generations. Thanks to 94 year old Lillian Mack for updating many of the recipes with ingredients that might be found by modern cooks.
