(AP) In this Jan. 5, 2012 photo, Geriann Headrick, acting food service manager at the Flandreau Indian School in Flandreau, S.D., cuts bison meat.
The school began preparing school meals with fresh bison meat this year as part of a project between the Flandreau Santee Sioux tribe and South Dakota State University researchers to restore the cultural significance of the animal and consumption of bison meat among community members, particularly the youth. Through cooking demonstrations and educational outreach opportunities, the students are learning that there are healthier — and tasty — options available that also connect them to their ancestors.
