I'd think things with blueberries & cranberries in the fall, in the northeast. Bison in the plains. Maze' in the west & south. Flour
cakes in the southwest. Fish on any coast. Grain all over with native herbs. Regional meat.

The only Native American food I've ever made is fry bread, which is a standard in all the nations. But your post really got me excited, Babe. I'm looking for recipes now, too.

It's going to depend on what Native Americans you're interested in. The plains & interior are going to have been more dependent on game & crops; coastal more dependant on seafood, as well as crops.

From what I understand of the authentic first "Thanksgiving", as we think of it, turkey played a somewhat lesser part, if any. Most of the food served consisted of fish, lobster, oysters, squash, bean, & corn dishes, augmented by some game.

Native Americans ate a lot of corn, squash, beans, fish, wild game, and made use of native herbs, roots, nuts, berries and seeds (like wild rice).
