ANTHROPOLOGY PROFESSOR PRESENTS BOOK ON NAVAJO DIET 4:00 PM SATURDAY, AUGUST 18, AT PAGE ONE

Illinois author Charlotte J. Frisbie, anthropology professor, will be at Page One Books 4:00 pm Saturday, August 18, to talk about and sign her latest non-fiction effort, "Food Sovereignty the Navajo Way: Cooking with Tall Woman."

The book is described as such: "Around the world, indigenous peoples are returning to traditional foods produced by traditional methods of subsistence. The goal of controlling their own food systems, known as food sovereignty, is to reestablish healthy lifeways to combat contemporary diseases such as diabetes and obesity. This is the first book to focus on the dietary practices of the Navajos, from the earliest known times into the present, and relate them to the Navajo Nation's participation in the global food sovereignty movement. It documents the time-honored foods and recipes of a Navajo woman over almost a century, from the days when Navajos gathered or hunted almost everything they ate to a time when their diet was dominated by highly processed foods."

Dr. Frisbie is a professor emerita of anthropology at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville. Her earlier works include "Tall Woman: The Life Story of Rose Mitchell, a Navajo Woman, c. 1874-1977" and "Navajo Blessingway Singer: The Autobiography of Frank Mitchell, 1881-1967," both available from UNM Press. She earned her Ph.D. from the University of New Mexico in 1970. She lives in Edwardsville, IL.

Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank Blvd NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Frisbie event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit www.page1book.com.
