My ancestors! Everything they did was with all there love in it.❤ I'm seen so many recipe. They always puncture a hole in the middle of the dough. This goes to show you, she has no problem with making fry bread, with out the hole in the middle. So perfect, with her beautiful hands!!

I grew up eating mutton, grandfather was a sheep herder and now I raise lambs on our small farm. I worked in K town for years delivering to the Black Mesa mine. (Stopping at the "taco stand" on top of the hill daily for lunch) This is among the finest delicacies you can get in the American west. It is often copied but it's not the same. The skills are beginning to disappear now. I sincerely hope your beautiful culture is not lost to our modern fast paced society. Thanks for sharing

Now it's no more using solid fats like shortening or lard. Cooking oil is what's recommended by IHS. Its artery clogging, cause for diabetes and expanding waistlines. As recent as the early 80s we still ate like this almost daily now we dont because we learned it's not good for our health. We only make fry bread on occasion there is a dinner.
Brody Hill (7 months ago)
Really? I heard otherwise. Most of the oils are not good for you in the long run and that's why I prefer lard, as it's natural. Not Crisco or any other shortening but Manteca lard. The best. Crisco, urban legend has it, is made from petroleum.

Big BB (1 year ago)
How can I get her full recipe for fried bread?
Ima Pseudonym (1 year ago)
I love how they claim it's "traditional" since wheat flour wasn't known by the american natives, until Europeans brought it over...
Ima Pseudonym (1 year ago)
But they did make a type of bread from the pollen of cattails. Sadly, no one makes that anymore.
finleyholiday (1 year ago)
You're right; the Navajo reference to traditional fry bread is more in the context of simple hand-prepared recipes versus the way everything today is store bought convenience – even on the Navajo reservation.
Ima Pseudonym (1 year ago)
That wasn't my point. My point was; that it's odd to call something "traditional" when, without European influence, it would never exist in the context that it is in now.
finleyholiday (1 year ago)
The Navajo families here have passed down these practices for generations, dating back to the late 1800’s and earlier. Native or not, they definitely are their traditions and well worth preserving compared to the micro-wave mentality of today’s modern world.

Navajos (In Athabascan - Di'neh or People) have cousins in Canada and Mexico, so you could have met a "Navajo", With Beauty all around you, make you walk in harmony!

Jasmin Flowerz Is fry bread similar to a bolluelos? I live in los angeles I can't find any Native American Restaurants.
Jasmin Flowerz (2 years ago)
mike madrid Imo, if you're Mexican, you're a Native...only that you got mixed with Spanish blood, that's all...but before that, Mexicans were one of many Native American tribes...like the Sioux, Apache, Creek, Lakota, etc. Correct me if I'm wrong. ... Interesting how similar Native cuisine is to Mexicans..."fry bread tacos",,,lots of corn, tomato, infused into diet.

E J Darly (4 years ago)
How sweet. When you see something like this it's so cool because they don't need all the modern kitchen tools to make wonderful food. It's weird because I'm starting to have a better appreciation for food now that I cook more of my own meals. When we rely on minimum wage works to fix our $5 pizzas and $ menu burgers we don't always understand the time and effort that was put into it until we start to do it ourselves.

I would watch my shinali in the mornings as she mixed the dough, for some reason it was soothing to hear her slap the dough from hand to hand 0:22. Sure do miss her!!!

My grandmas are Navajo and they always wear their dresses and jewelry. This one time we went to get some wood and they both were dressed up like this grandma in the video. They were getting down cooking and making tortillas all dressed up with their nice turquoise jewelry kneeling down like this.
