I’ve been really digging Native poetry lately and I thought I’d gather a few poems about food. In this short episode, Native writers recite food poems about foreign foods, frybread, seeds and ancestral wisdom. Voices are:

Tiffany Midge, Hunkpapa Lakota humorist, poet and author of “Bury My Heart at Chuck E. Cheese’s”

Taté Walker, Two-Spirit storyteller and Mniconjou Lakota

Donell Barlow, Ottawa chef and author

Rubi Orozco-Santos, award-winning poet and public health educator
