#70: The TRUE American Food No One’s Talking About

March 28, 2019

When you think of American food, you probably think of burgers, hot dogs, or apple pie, but if we dig deeper, indigenous food has been so stripped away from American culture, that we don't even think twice about it.

On this week's Katchpup episode, we are joined by Uproxx's Steve Bramucci, and an extra special guest in writer Zach Johnston, who has made it his mission to bring indigenous, American Indian food to light. 

Johnston explains what indigenous food actually consists of, gives a brutal current and historic look at what reservations life is like, and highlights indigenous chefs who are trying to bring American Indian food into the mainstream. 

*Note* "American Indian" and "indigenous" were both terms preferred by Johnston in the conversation.
