The latest issue of the Review of International American Studies is now out and is dedicated to an issue very near and dear to my own research interests: Indigenous social movements in the Americas.
I had the pleasure of reviewing Paul Freedman’s impressive Ten Restaurants that Changed America. It fills many gaps in America’s overlooked restaurant history. In my review I also mentioned Berkeley’s Cafe Ohlone: a reminder that one can not talk about food culture in North America without acknowledging Indigenous chefs, ingredients, and other influences.
I am delighted to be in excellent company. To name just a few, Mariaelena Anali Huambachano has written about Indigenous foodways in Peru, Elizabeth Hoover about fire and the water protectors at Standing Rock, and Zuzanna Kruk-Buchowska about food sovereignty efforts in the Oneida Nation.
