The Mitsitam Cafe Cookbook, Recipes from the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian by Richard Hetzler
"Since the 2004 opening of the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., the museum's Mitsitam Cafe has become a destination in its own right. Drawing upon tribal culinary traditions from five Native Culture areas in the Americas- Northeast Woodlands and Great Lakes, South American, North Pacific Coast and Columbia Plateau, Mesoamerican, and Great Plains- the Cafe's recipes feature staples that were once unknown in the rest of the world. Presented here are ninety of those recipes, adapted for home cooks and showcasing indigenous American foods such as chocolate, chiles, tomatoes, potatoes, wild rice, salmon, buffalo, blueberries, and corn."
Mitsitam is an expression in the Piscataway and Delaware languages that means, "Let's eat!"
