WARRANTS MEMORIALIZING / PEOPLE MURDERED IN THE AMERICAS FAR SURPASSES THOSE MURDERED IN THE HOLOCAUST.

shared Antonio Sanchez‘s photo.

WHILE I WAS IN THE EAST COAST I TOOK THE TIME TO VISIT THE HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL AT THE SMITHSONIAN AND WAS APPALLED TO SEE THE MAGNITUDE OF WHAT THE NAZIS DID.

THOUGH I HAVE READ MANY ACCOUNTS OF THAT TERRIBLE EPOCH IN HISTORY, THIS EXHIBIT OPENED MY MINDS EYE TO THE IMMENSITY OF THE HORRIFIC CRIME.

BUT I TRULY BELIEVE THAT WE NEED A MEMORIAL OF THIS SIZE AND SCOPE TO MEMORIALIZE WHAT WAS DONE IN THIS HEMISPHERE. AFTER ALL IT IS WHAT HAPPENED HERE THAT INSPIRED HITLER.

AND THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE MURDERED IN THE AMERICAS FAR SURPASSES THOSE MURDERED IN THE HOLOCAUST.

THAT FACT ALONE WARRANTS MEMORIALIZING THE HOLOCAUST WHICH TOOK PLACE HERE.

Will Native American Cuisine Ever Get Its Due?

By Toyacoyah Brown on August 20, 2014

“Locally sourced”, “foraged”, “farm-to-table” seem to be all the buzz in the food world these days. However it seems like common sense when you look at it from a Native American perspective. There were no grocery stores “back in the day” and the land provided what you needed. Read more in this article from Food & Wine about how chefs like Nephi Craig are trying to bring Native American cuisine (pre-Columbian) back to the forefront.

http://www.foodandwine.com/blogs/2014/8/8/will-native-american-cuisine-ever-get-its-due

In summer’s copper twilight, Apache chef Nephi Craig collects wild tea 
from the foothills of Arizona’s White Mountains, just as he has every year since he was a boy. Like generations of Apache before him, Craig gathers it in 
a deliberate, contemplative way—careful never to pull it up by the roots, so it 
will grow back. For centuries, Apache have steeped these tawny stalks to brew a reddish-orange drink that helps cure colds and connects their people to the traditions of their ancestors. But Craig uses wild tea and other foraged flora 
to create a different kind of link—one between this isolated corner of Native American country and the wider culinary world.

As he fills his basket, Craig climbs 
to 10,000 feet, an elevation from which he can take in the peaks and valleys of the mountain range where Apache have always collected, cooked and eaten the plants they found. Finally, he reaches Summit Restaurant at 
the Sunrise Park Resort Hotel, where he uses foraged ingredients in his remarkable tasting menus—his pioneering take on Native American cuisine.

The interplay between traditional and modern is what makes Craig’s menu fascinating. Some dishes appear under their romanized Apache names: The gazpacho-esque 
chilled tomato soup with quinoa and mint, for instance, is 
Itoo’ Chínk’ózhé, Sik’az. Those words tell a story—one about 
the time when tomatoes went by a different name and 
ancient culinary geniuses made use of their deliciousness.

Craig’s quest to bring Native cuisine to prominence—
a mission he shares with like-minded chefs in the Native American Culinary Association that he founded in 
2003—is going to take time. But one of his early acolytes 
is his 10-year-old son, Ari. Like many kids, Ari is into 
baseball and soccer, but with the persuasive power of 
a Google search, Craig piqued his son’s interest in their 
shared culinary history. “I sat Ari down in front of the computer and said, ‘Look at these chefs in Denmark and 
New York doing what they call foraging,’ ” Craig says. 
“ ‘We’ve done that for generations, and now people all over 
the world are doing it, too.’ ”
