A time to feast is frequent in our Native Nations. This month we welcome one of the editors of “The Pueblo Food Experience Cookbook: Whole Food of Our Ancestors,” Roxanne Swentzell from Santa Clara Pueblo. The book unlocks many of the savory tastes of the Southwest. The recipes and narratives promote healthy living with the original floodways of the Pueblo nations including the use of pre-contact ingredients that readers are encouraged to grow themselves. Swentzell says it’s a way for Native people to remember who they are as Pueblo people.
