Indian Fair & Market, part 4
On my way out of the Indian Fair & Market, I caught sight of singer Radmilla Cody performing on the Pavilion Stage near the exit. She writes her own songs and explained how each one developed before she sang it. What a lovely voice she has.
This woman was making a Native American treat called Piki bread. It's from the Hopi cuisine, made of blue cornmeal and ash. The batter is spread out by hand on a hot grilling platform. It cooks quickly and is then rolled up (again by hand from the hot grill) and served. I bet she has developed some serious calluses on her finger tips.
But these two things just touch the tip of the iceberg when I comes to what I saw there. So many extremely talented people all in one place. It was a treat for the eyes.
