Trick-or-treating and costume parties are back on this year after pandemic fits and starts. That means lots of candy and chocolate. Today on Native America Calling, in our regular feature The Menu, our resident foodie Andi Murphy takes a look at the Indigenous origins of chocolate with Julio Saqui (Mayan), founder and owner of Che’il Mayan Chocolate; checks out Itality, a new plant-based Native restaurant in Albuquerque, NM with founder and owner Tina Archuleta (Jemez Pueblo); and chats with Monie Horsechief (Pawnee and Cherokee), owner of Horsechief Catering and this year’s National Indian Taco champion. Plus, Acee Agoyo (Ohkay Owingeh/Cochiti/Kewa), co-founder of Indianz.com, gives us an update on the Elizabeth Hoover situation.
