Continuing to Honor Our Cooking Traditions

This cold time of year usually means time to rest, catching up with loved ones and eating heartwarming foods. ICT's Carina Dominguez tells the story of the tamale tradition for her Pasqua Yaqui relatives from Tucson, Arizona. Minnesota is on the culinary map, due in part, to the mentorship of the Sioux Chef, also known as Sean Sherman, Oglala Lakota. Tashia Hart and Brian Yazzie once worked for Sherman, and now they are both on culinary paths. We also feature the Sherman's 'Owamni' restaurant located on the banks of the Mississippi River. ICT Reporters take you to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico; 'Wahpepah's Kitchen' in Oakland, California and 'Kai,' a four-star restaurant owned by the Gila River Tribe in Phoenix, Arizona.
