Foods from Native American Indians come from Tribes and Alaska Natives throughout the United States and are grown on lands of the Native American Nations or fished and harvested from their natural waters. Many of the products sold are still harvested in ways defined hundreds of years ago by the American Indian Tribes and Alaska Natives.
Food products from participants in the American Indian Foods export program include beef jerky, chillis, chocolate, popcorn, wild rice, fry bread, fruits and vegetables, meats to include buffalo, seafood/fish, spices and seasonings, maple syrup, wine and other agricultural products.
In addition to exhibiting at international and U.S. food shows, American Indian Foods export program sponsors Native Tastes cooking demonstrations, foreign buyer missions and press missions. Native Tastes activities have been held in Osaka and Kyoto in the past to introduce the food trade to American Indian Foods products. The program included a presentation on American Indian Foods, dishes prepared with Native American products and a cooking demonstration by a Native American chef.
