Frybread Stories and Diné Oral Histories

Listen to Diné oral histories while learning how to make a traditional recipe of frybread during the OHA Welcome Reception on Wednesday, October 16, 5 PM-7 PM, in Canyon’s Lobby at the Sheraton Salt Lake City Hotel.

Description: Frybread is a mixed symbol of survival, hope, death, and tragedy to Native Americans throughout North America. While learning how to prepare frybread dough with generations of Diné women, we will explore the complicated histories and oral traditions of frybread. We will have the opportunity to hear oral histories of Diné womanhood, family, and community, while enjoying frybread, known as “dah díníilghaazh” in Navajo.
