When White Mountain Apache/Navajo Nephi Craig enrolled in culinary school, there was nothing like "Native American Cuisine 101" in the curriculum. Upon graduating, Nephi launched the Native American Culinary Association, a network devoted to the development and preservation of Native American foodways. Nephi has now brought it all home to Whiteriver, Arizona, to establish a Western Apache Café and Learning Center to provide local opportunities for nutritional recovery, training and employment.

This program is presented by the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering and is funded in part by Nevada Humanities, Nevada's nonprofit state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
