American Indian Foods

Just as botanicals and herbs make up a significant part of Native American culture, American Indian foods directly coincide with daily life and ritual. Using tea plants, turnips, corn, and other foods enable one to make authentic Plains dishes - enjoy the tastes, textures, and aromas of Northern Plains tribal cuisine.

Grown and harvested throughout South Dakota and the Midwest, these Plains Indian foods are made available seasonally and year round depending on harvest times.
