I have made this recipe a few times at college with the help of my Native American friends. Although Columbus Day is over, I believe that it is important to learn and honor Native American culture. I recently joined LUNA, a Native American organization on campus where I am the secretary. I've been learning so much about the culture and I wanted to share a recipe.
