What Happens When Americans Try Native Cuisine?

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown May 8th, 2016 Last Updated on: April 17th, 2017

In another hilarious video from Buzzfeed, we find out what happens with typical Americans try Native American foods. How do you think they'll react? Watch and see!

Consensus? “I bet this is what you eat when you have your life together.” Haha! In other words, healthy and tasty.

The video could have gone much deeper though. What other foods would you have liked to see them try? Sofke, grape dumplings, wojapi, mutton, bison, elk or moose?

Roast mutton, corn stew, and kneel-down-bread are basics here in Shiprock, NM. Cannot forget to mention roast achee’ ; which is sheep intestines wrapped around fat.


Kneel-down bread? Ingredients?
Ma made frybread, but her’s was ‘sweeter’ than the fry bread I have tried at other Pow-wow’s. Is this dependent on the tribes or individuals?
Thank you for your time.

Damn that’s to bad they didn’t serve fried bologna sandwiches, Spam , or Corned beef hash ! What’s up with that ? Commodities cheese was an all time favorite. Powdered eggs and powdered milk was on our menu. These people don’t know what there’re missing!
