Fry Bread
Although it's a Native American dish, fry bread is a relatively modern invention. Before the settlers arrived in the area, people used local grains such as wild rice or corn to make porridge-like dishes. The technique of baking flatbreads was learned from the settlers, and frying wheat bread didn't arise until Native Americans in South Dakota had to live on reservations and use the supplies they were allotted. In spite of this inauspicious beginning, fry bread has become a favorite with all South Dakotans. It's commonly served plain as a snack or side dish, and frequently substitutes for a crunchy corn tortilla in the middle-American version of tacos. It's also a dessert with cooked, sweetened native berries.
