Louis Fowler’s Pandemic Journal: Frybread Power

This past weekend, as usual, were a terrible couple of days for the country: the government successfully blocked citizens married to immigrants from receiving stimulus checks, Indigenous peoples have been consistently kept out of Coronavirus data and, in Oklahoma City, white supremacists left their anti-Asian mark on area stop signs.

Usually, when things became a bit overwhelming, there was always someplace for me to gather my senses and enjoy a handmade Native meal, calling on my familial spirits for the will and power to weather these dark days. But, of course, that’s not available right now, with organizations like the Oklahoma City Pow Wow Club and the Choctaw Tribal Alliance currently out of commission due to Covid.

So, for the first time in a couple of years, I decided to make one of favorites, frybread, to varying degrees of success.
