Navajo Food Practices, Customs and Holidays. That is about as close to Native American eating practices as I have seen in print.
In Minnesota and South Dakota Native Americans’ food choices consisted of wild game (deer, duck, and goose), freshwater lake fish (walleye, Northern pike and trout), wild rice, and berries (blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries). Unfortunately, they Americanized their lean healthy eating choices by introducing fats and fried foods. There is a high incidence of diabetes, especially among some Native American tribes who have adopted fast food choices.
