Grandma quietly whispers a blessing over the food for her grandchildren. She believes that the combined power of her prayers and the food will nourish her grandchildren for success. In the Navajo culture, during a ceremony the Hogan (home) is filled with food to bless the medicine man and to nourish everyone in the family. Navajo women are taught to take pride in the meals they prepare because the feelings and attitudes they carry will be absorbed by those who eat the meal. Today food is still sacred among Native Americans, but historical events have influenced cultural degradation and given rise to various social issues that inhibit healthy eating across Native American communities. Communities that once thrived are now plagued by dietary related health problems like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Since cultural
