    Hi LisaFaye:

    You are welcome. May I ask what American Indian Nation(s) ancestory you have?

    PRCA, I have mostly Cherokee-two great grandmothers and a great grandfather that were full blooded- but do have another of the western tribes in the line-Comanche or Black Foot, I think-but have been unable to remember which for sure as my Grandfather had told me when I was small but had told no one else in the family and now he is gone.
    The older I get, the more I find I am interested in connecting with those roots and learning about the culture.

    Hi LisaFaye:

    I have Cherokee blood on my paternal side of the family and Cherokee-Choctaw blood on my maternal side of the family.

    1. Late maternal grandfather - Cherokee
    2. Late maternal grandmother - Cherokee-Choctaw
    3. Late paternal grandmother - Cherokee

    I am not sure about my late paternal grandfather.

    I completely understand about wanting to connect with your American Indian heritage and wanting to learn about the American Indian culture.

    Some of the ways that I connect to my Cherokee-Choctaw heritage is by fixing American Indian recipes and by going to Indian pow-wows and dancing in some of the pow-wow dances (Gourd Dancing - Social Dancing - Round Dancing - Blanket Dancing - Honor Dancing - Intertibal Dancing - various other American Indian Dances including Stomp Dancing).

    The older I get, the more that I am finding that there is more and more of a conflict between my American Indian heritage and my WASP heritage.

    Boil three cups of water. Stir in 1 cup coarse cornmeal grits. Simmer until water is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Cool. When mixture is cool enough to handle, turn onto work surface floured with 1/2 cup fine cornmeal flour. Work into 2 flat cakes. Bake on floured cookie sheet at 400ºF for 3/4 of an hour.

    This may not taste very good to some of us today.

    The Indians were also the inventors of candied corn, or popcorn balls. They shared it with the white settlers who came over from the "Old World."

    Popcorn Balls

    (Native American were the first make popcorn balls)


    Ingredients:

    6 cups popped corn
    2 cups shelled peanuts
    1-1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    1-1/2 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
    6 tablespoons water

    Put the popped corn into a large bowl or pot. Add the peanuts. Mix well and set aside.

    In a heavy saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the sugar and water and continue cooking over low heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to moderate and boil the syrup, without stirring, until it reaches the soft-ball stage (about 238ºF on candy thermometer). Slowly pour the hot syrup over the popped corn and nuts, turning and mixing with a long handled wooden spoon to coat all the kernels and nuts. As soon as mixture is cool enough to handle, shape it lightly into balls with buttered hands. Let dry thoroughly on wax paper before wrapping them.

    I guess since I am just a mixed person from many backgrounds on the British Isles I do not have any real ethnic recipes but my DH's mother used to make a dish that she called Indian Dumplings. she says she got it from an old American Indian lady. Here it is. there are no real measurments because she cooked by guess and by golly it was good.

    Indian Dumplings

    wild blackberries, as many as you want or can get
    Sugar to taste depending on how sweet you like things
    water - just enough to keep them from sticking
    flour two cups or more depending on the size of your pot
    baking powder - 1t per 2 c flour
    melted butter - enough to make the flour crumbly like coarse meal
    a little milk - enough to make a stiff batter

    Put the berries in a big kettle with the water and sugar to taste. Bring to a boil. Drop the batter in and cook 10 minutes without a lid then put a tight lid on and cook on med for another 10 min. Serve either warm or cold with cream or ice cream. (

    My MIL would always save any left over for her breakfast the next morning)

    Cont'd: Fry Bread

    For the fry bread:

    2 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup dry milk solids
    2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons lard, cut into 1/2-inch bits, plus 1 pound lard, for deep frying

    Combine the flour, dry milk solids, baking powder and salt, and sift them into a deep bowl. Add the lard bits and, with your fingertips, rub the flour and fat together until the mixture resembles flakes of coarse meal. Pour in the water and toss the ingredients together until the dough can be gathered into a ball. Drape the bowl with a kitchen towel and then let the dough sit at room temperature for about 2 hours. After sitting, tear the dough into 6 equal pieces. Then, on a lightly floured surface, roll each dough ball into a circle about 4 inches in diameter and 1/4-inch thick. With a small knife, cut 2 (4 to 5-inch) long parallel slits completely through the dough, down the center of each rolled piece, spacing the slits about 1-inch apart. In a heavy, 10-inch cast iron skillet, melt the remaining pound of lard over moderate heat until it is very hot but not smoking. The melted fat should be about 1-inch deep, add more lard if necessary. Fry the rolled dough, 1 at a time, for about 2 minutes on each side, turning them once with tongs. The bread will puff slightly and become crisp and brown. Drain the Navajo fry bread on paper towels and serve warm.

    In Cherokee country this is our "fry bread"....

    4 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 1/2 cups warm water
    4 cups shortening for frying

    Combine flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir in 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water. Knead until soft but not sticky. Shape dough into balls about

    Inches in diameter. Flatten into patties 1/2 inch thick, and make a small hole in the center of each patty.

    Fry one at a time in 1 inch of hot shortening, turning to brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.

    Now you fill them with your meat, beans, lettuce, tomatoes and cheese...

    This is the recipe we use for your fund raisers.
