  • Cookbook captures traditional foods of the Hualapai

    For the past year, tribal elders and students have made twice-monthly excursions into tribal lands and traditional use areas to share stories and food knowledge important to the Hualapai. Their efforts have now been documented in a unique cookbook and a deck of playing cards explaining the ethnobotany (the study of plants and how they are used by a people) of the Hualapai people.

    Both Recipes of the Hualapai Tribe, and the cards were distributed during a Fall Feast celebration involving the students and staff of the Hualapai Ethnobotany Project, co-sponsored by another group, Hakdagwiva Ba:j ba wiw joh (Helping the People of Peach Springs).
