Auntie’s Fry Bread traces back more than 20 years to Little Big Horn Days in Hardin, Montana. The Koyama family, Japanese Farmers who have lived in the area for over 60 years, came up with their own version of fry bread tacos, based on recipes learned from our friends and neighbors in the Crow Community.
In 2010, while living and working in Los Angeles, we had a hankering for fry bread tacos that could not be satisfied.
Growing up in Montana, fry bread tacos were a comfort food that we all loved (and still do). They are a Native American meal, often found at pow-wows and other festivities. So why is it not found in most major cities? In Los Angeles, we could not locate a single place to purchase a fry bread taco. We decided it was time to take the family recipe and share it with the big city folk. Thus, Auntie’s Fry Bread was born.
