The more I learn about traditional foods, the more I'm amazed.

Many tribes made cakes or bread out of different kinds of roots, nuts, or corn. Even my own tribe, the Shoshones, dried certain roots, ground it up and made little cakes. So I don't think it was a great leap to make little patties out of rationed flour and fry it up.

Shoshones even carved cooking pots out of local steatite that could withstand high temps. Did we fry our ground root flour patties? Maybe.

Frybread is rated right up there with cakes, cookies, and pie which can be enjoyed as an occasional treat according to the American Diabetic Association. They're even saying a diabetic can have up to 65-70 carbs per meal which is about the size of a 10 inch frybread.

So even poison, in moderation, won't kill you.
