Twenty five years ago I left behind a broken life and began my travels on the red road. Through many journeys and hours and hours listening to the stories of the elders, both Native and non-Native I began to gather their stories and traditions and from the meals shared with them I recorded their personal favorites into a collection that could be enjoyed by future generations. Thanks to 94 year old Lillian Mack for updating many of the recipes with ingredients that might be found by modern cooks.
Traditional recipes gathered from the Grandmothers of all cultures as I traveled the Canadian Prairies and listened to the stories and shared the food of elders.Most of these recipes have been passed down by word of mouth, like the talking stories of First Nations culture.
