Bannock Fry Bread, incredibly popular and can be eaten as a savory or sweet. A little bit naughty but oh so nice!

Bannock Taco also known as Indian Taco gets its name from the Bannock Fry Bread often used by Native American Indians.

Fry bread was created in 1864 using the flour, sugar, salt and lard that was given to them by the United States government when the Navajo Native Americans, living in Arizona, were forced to make the 300-mile journey known as the "Long Walk" and relocate to Bosque Redondo, New Mexico onto land that couldn't easily support their traditional staples of vegetables and beans.

For many Native Americans, "fry bread links generation with generation and also connects the present to the painful narrative of Native American history. It is often served both at home and at gatherings. The way it is served varies from region to region and different tribes have different recipes. It can be found in its many ways at state fairs and pow-wows, but what is served to the paying public may be different from what is served in private homes and in the context of tribal family relations.
