This is great. It’s not often we get to highlight one of our customers, but the National Museum of the American Indian recently got some press for the Native dishes they serve. Among others, our Red Corn Native Foods, Fry Bread mix which is available in the gift store. Check out the great article on what they have to offer here.
Hopefully this esteemed play, The Fry Bread Queen, by Carolyn Dunn (Creek/Cherokee) plays here in Oklahoma. But for those of you on the left coast it looks like you will have your chance March 12-27th at the Wells Fargo Theater at The Autry National Center, Los Angeles.
It sounds awesome. For more information follow this link here.
This is a film by my good buddy Steve Judd, a Choctaw/Kiowa from Oklahoma City. If you have ever met Steve, he is pretty much insane. He has a joke for every food group; fry bread group, meat pie group, and Indian Taco group. Enjoy this movie trailer and look for it at an indigenous film festival near you this year! (We are trying to get it shown at the National Indian Taco Championships this year on May 21st, 2011)
The 7th annual National Indian Taco Championships have been scheduled for May 21st, 2011 in downtown Pawhuska, Oklahoma.

Dallas Goldtooth and myself will be the emcees representing the 1491’s. And there is a chance the Osage Nation will have its film festival during the same time, keep your fingers crossed!
Here is a short film that Sterlin Harjo and I shot and edited as part of the 1491’s. We just wanted to show the world how happy Natives are. We will likely be shooting a follow up to this at the National Indian Taco Championships in Pawhuska, Oklahoma on May 21st, 2011. The event will be hosted by myself and Dallas Goldtooth, also of the 1491’s. In addition the Osage Nation is considering putting on a film festival. Keep your Fingers Crossed! – Ryan Red Corn
Tocabe has set up for the last 2 Years at the National Indian Taco Championships here in Pawhuska. Although they have yet to win the big prize or place they always manage to make a splash. I hope they continue to show up because their Indian Tacos are straight keeeeeeeen now. 🙂 If you are ever in the Denver area make sure to patronize their restaurant and make sure to say hello to Ben the owner, he’s a real good guy.
I thought this was an enjoyable reflection of how I feel after I eat fry bread. enjoy!
