  • - We're having Native American food.

  • - Which is really, we're just eating

  • American food, for the first time.

  • (upbeat funky music)

  • It smells amazing in here!

  • - Ohh.

  • - I am so excited to see how people react

  • to this. (laughs)

  • They're probably going to die.

  • (dramatic upbeat music)

  • - I ate a light lunch today actually

  • to prepare for this.

  • And that's why.

  • - We have to share?

  • (both make airplane sounds)

  • - Oh my God, it smells so nutty.

  • - This taste healthy as (beep).

  • - I feel like this is what you eat

  • when you have your life together.

  • - So many grains. - [Guy] Grains.

  • A lot of grains.

  • - My poop is gonna just be perfect.

  • - This is definitely like a unique kind of rice.

  • I don't think I've ever had anything like this.

  • - What point in history do you think

  • we started pooping so poorly?

  • - Hmm, whenever white people got involved. (laughter)

  • - Wild rice, is not actually rice.

  • It's a grass seed.

  • - It's not really rice.

  • - We just ate grass?

  • - Oh.

  • - Well, we learn something everyday.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - We got ourselves some. - [Guy] Oh, this smells good!

  • - This is like soup my grandma would make.

  • - There's corn.

  • There's beans.

  • There's a bunch of different vegetables.

  • - The three sisters are beans, corn, and squash

  • and they were all grown together,

  • almost like one big crop.

  • - Fourth sister, she can go (beep) herself.

  • - The cornstalk would grow.

  • The bean sprout would grow up the cornstalk.

  • The squash would cover the ground

  • and protect the root system.

  • - Oh... - [Guy] They're called the

  • three sisters because they lived together.

  • - Oh, that's so sweet. - [Guy] Wow.

  • - I want to hang out with those sisters

  • because this (beep) is good!

  • - Definitely see the similarities between

  • Native American food

  • and African American food.

  • - This definitely tastes like something that

  • latin folk would make.

  • - It actually tastes like tortilla soup a little bit too.

  • - It feels familiar to me.

  • It feels like home.

  • (upbeat fast-paced music)

  • - I've been waiting all day for this.

  • - Oohhh. - [Guy] Wow!

  • - It's cute!

  • - Aww man, this is just a frisbee of goodness,

  • right here.

  • - I should, I'm just gonna pick it up.

  • - Mmm, (beep)!

  • - This is so good.

  • - An Indian taco is fry bread with chili

  • and all this dank ass stuff. (laughs)

  • - This one is not healthy.

  • - This is diabetes on a plate.

  • - Dang, this is some good ass drunk food right here.

  • - Oh my God!

  • - This bread taste different than any kind of other

  • bread I've ever had.

  • - And it kicks a funnel cake's ass.

  • - I feel like a lot of Native culture hasn't crossed

  • over into main true American culture

  • and that's a damn shame

  • because this food is so damn good.

  • - There's certain cultures in which we don't have

  • access to.

  • I mean, I don't know why we don't have a ton

  • of access to Native American culture.

  • - I feel like people think that like

  • all Native traditions and everything

  • is like dead and this is some ancient food

  • that we are reincarnating, right now.

  • It's still something that people eat every single day.

  • - And if this is hiding within Native culture,

  • then I can't imagine what else is waiting for us.

  • - It's a shame because obviously

  • Native American culture has so much to offer.

  • And food is just one of them.

  • - I'm honored to be eating this.

  • This deliciousness.

  • - It's so good.

  • What, what do you want from me?

- We're having Native American food.
