TRADITIONAL SOUP OF THE KIKAPU


PUMPKIN SOUP WITH CHICKEN: A TRADITIONAL MEAL OF THE KIKAPU
My Kikapu sister brings big sized squash from Mexico and with the help of someone, peels and cleans the skin and dries it the way it has been done for generations of the Kikapu.
Tonight she prepared Chicken Soup with Squash and Celery, Baby Carrots, Onion, Tomato with Rice. It was indeed delicious.

When you are eating traditional meals, the words of my teacher from Meskwaki tribe ring in my ears:  It is the food that made us sick. A group of ancient people who survived on wholly organic food for generations were exposed and in many cases forced to eat fabricated excess food of the white Americans. Now we know that the flora of the intestines of these people rebelled against the garbage that came their way..Causing a myriad of illnesses..

So I particularly cherished the food, traditional to begin with, prepared with sisterly love by a Kikapu, shared meal with friends who are close to my heart…
