A Native is being rewarded for knowingly creating a non-traditional food that is poison to her people.
Getting back to this thread theme -

Good point, I was driving down into T.O. Nation in AZ, some teens had frybread/taco stand going, not far from the Dialysis Clinic.

Then the gas station in Sells, AZ is full of junkfood - sugar, oil, and salt.....deadly ingredients for a people who's ancestral gene pool was not aculturated to this modern crap.
