  1. Thank you for sharing this book. We are celebrating Native American Heritage Month where I work which will include a pot luck on the 22nd. The 2nd in command at my store is part Creek so I am sharing this link with her so she will have recipes to use for the pot luck. However, I was overjoyed to find a recipe for Sassafras Tea. My dad used to make the tea when I was a child, and my brothers and sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed it because it tasted like root beer. This was a wonderful find for me.

  2. I also was wishing I had the recipe for “Sassafras Tea”, I never see it offered at the dinners, since I was a child.

  5. I have enjoyed reading this cookbook. We will try the fried bread during our study of Native Americans. Thank you.

  6. Thank you SO much for posting this. My mother and aunt were recalling the foods they used to eat growing up on Tiger Mountain last night. Since I enjoy cooking so much, I would love to try to recreate some of the dishes they remember eating when young (they’re 85 and 83).
