    1. Fry Bread is associated with Native Americans, and has a complex history. It is often a staple food at Pow Wows, and at home. Each tribe may have a slightly different recipe, but its origin comes from the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and lard provided by the U.S. Government to Indian reservations and boarding schools. Some see it as traditional Indian food, but others see it as a symbol of oppression, the antitheses of Indian food that centered on corn and beans.

  6. My Mother in law made fry bread all the time. I never cared for it but others just gobbled it down.

    1. Yes, very similar, but some fry bread is deep fried.

  9. Sounds a little like Damper, the Aboriginal bush bread TFG, although I think that is more crushed seed based.

    1. Did not know about Damper bread, but it sounds similar except for baking method.
