Maintaining a thriving culture in the face of destructive pressure is very difficult. Native American nations have faced attack and persecution for centuries and yet have worked to nurture their culture and history. Inside, see how those communities today often look to shared food traditions as a way of coping. A leading Native American chef explains how food is vital to these communities as a way of connecting to their sacred past, as well as bridging the gap to the future. No matter where they come from, people living together have a long history of sharing meals, eating foods and dishes that have been passed down for centuries. In this series, find out how the experience of eating together helps create new communities while building strong bonds to the old. Each title in CONNECTING CULTURES THROUGH FAMILY AND FOOD includes color photos throughout, and back matter including an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities, and expand their viewpoints through our content rich nonfiction books. Key Icons in this series are: Words to Understand shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced color type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions, building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content-rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the material they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter and give readers suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. A Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter containing terminology used throughout the series. Words found here broaden the reader's knowledge and understanding of terms used in this field.
