Fried bread and mutton are the staples of the Navajo people in the southwestern United States. Making fry bread is perhaps one of the oldest Navajo traditions.
They introduced mutton to their cooking traditions later on, to supplement and add variety to their diet, after starting to raise sheep and goats.
Take a look at the video bellow and see how the Native American people are cooking two traditional foods in Monument Valley, an area part of the Navajo Nation.
The Navajo people are very geared toward family life and events that surround their lifestyle.
