Bannock - what recipe does this look similar to?

  • Combine egg with water (is using an egg), and add to the flour mixture.

  • Stir to form a soft dough, and knead briefly.

  • If using a frying pan, grease the pan then dust with flour.

  • Place about a quarter of the dough in the pan and heat.

  • Bake until the bottom is lightly brown, then flip.

  • Bake about 10 minutes on the opposite side.

  • Bake remaining dough in similar fashion.

  • 2 1/2 cups flour 6 tsp baking powder1/2 tsp salt2 tbsp sugar (optional)1/3 cup lard2 eggs, optional1 cup water or more

  • Combine first four ingredients.

  • Add lard, rubbing it in to form fine crumbs.

Tea biscuits!

What is lard

  • A fat that comes from pig fat

  • Modern day North American Indians enjoy a bannock recipe as much as their ancestors did.

  • The ingredients are modernized to produce a lighter dough, but the taste is just as good, maybe better.

  • Bannock is a versatile quick bread, similar to a baking powder biscuit.

  • You can include extras such as raisins, currents, blueberries, cinnamon or cheese if desired.

Bannock Trivia

  • Bannock was favored by nomadic tribes because the dry mixture stayed fresh for long periods. They added the fat or oil at cooking time.

  • Let’s watch how to make bannock


What Foods did Aboriginals Hunt?







Foods Aboriginals Hunted





Foods they Trapped




Foods they gathered

Aboriginal People of Today Issues

  • Many of the foods that Canadian aboriginal peoples used to eat are no longer as plentiful as they were in the past

  • Aboriginal people have to travel further in order to hunt & fish


  • Obesity was notcommon in the early Aboriginal peoples

  • Now it is a major health concern

  • They are at risk for diabetes and heart disease

  • The Risk of heart disease is higher in aboriginal people than the general Canadian population

Dental Disease

  • When the Europeans first came to North America they remarked on how good the teeth were of the Aboriginal people

  • This was because the Aboriginal people's diet was low in refined carbohydrates and high in protein

  • Now the Aboriginal Diet is much higher in refined carbohydrates ( bread, cereals, candies)

  • Leads to higher rate of dental disease

  • Problems with baby bottle

    • tooth decay caused from sugar sitting in the baby’s mouth
