Indigenous Goddess Gang

Creating a space for sharing medicine through poetry, food & seed knowledge, herbalism, music and more. This is a space for reclaiming knowledge from an indigenous femme lens. Each month we will honor a different tribe of matriarchs in our fashion shoots. Each month we will continue to grow and share the knowledge of our matriarchs and share that medicine. 

Indigenous Goddess Gang is a space intended for INDIGENOUS people. We've had our land taken from us, we've had our cultures taken from us,  we've had our languages taken from us. This is a step towards reclaiming our knowledge, identity and medicine.  This site is not intended for exploiting or appropriating.  Tread lightly and respectfully.

MANOOMIN ELK MEATBALLS 

Manoomin Elk Meatballs are a hybridized modern recipe for the carnivorous types who love wild game. Elk has been a long time staple food for many different tribes across Turtle Island. Manoomin (Wild Rice) has a been at the center of the Ojibwe food culture since time immemorial. Now you can enjoy both of these highly nutritious foods in one meal packed with ancestral flavors. Food is our medicine.

  • 1/2 lb of Elk Meat (or any other wild game) 

  • 1 cup of cooked Ojibwe Wild Rice 

  • 1 organic free-range egg

  • 1/8th cup of minced garlic 

  • Organic ground pepper 

  • 1/8th cup of minced red onions

  • Sea Salt  

  • Pumpkin seeds

  • olive oil 

INSTRUCTIONS: 

Preheat oven to 400˚F and coat baking sheet with olive oil. In a large bowl mix all the ingredients together and shape into 1/1/2 inch meatballs. Place them about 1 inch apart and bake for 18-25 mins util they're no longer pink in the middle. After they're done cooking top them with organic pumpkin seeds and a little more pepper if you like. This makes about 8 meatballs. Total cook and prep time is 30 mins. 

Try serving these with a dark leafy green salad like dandelion greens or lacinto kale for added fiber, vitamins and minerals. and slices of avocados on the side.
