They don’t call this an Indigenous food movement for nothing. Every year, Native food warriors are taking bigger strides creating a wholesome Native food system, one based on tradition and culture and supported by today’s markets, media and palate. 2021 included Native restaurant openings, new food businesses, cookbook releases and tribes fighting to protect traditional resources from a variety of threats. We’ll review 2021 in Indigenous food and discuss the trajectory of this culinary movement.
