About the Book

This book is called Rez Cheez to memorialize those huge blocks of cheese that were part of the Treaty Rights for Native Nations who ended the genocide of the Native American people and the five-hundred-year wars between Native Nations (who did not believe in war) and those who invaded their lands with newly made guns. The old recipes are mentioned, as well as ways to create them in view of better traditional use of healthy foods, and to better control the diabetes that resulted from those treaty foods which more often than not consisted of fat, sugar, and white flour. All foods not contained in traditional recipes. The cover picture is zucchini lasagne, a heart and diabetes healthier version of use of vegetables and squash which is a traditional Native Nation food resource and of course, Rez cheese, or healthier versions.
