Carol Tiger, Muscogee Creek, has been cooking since she was 8 or 9 years old “because mom and dad had to go to work” she says in Kirk Bell’s film Hompvks Ce "You All Eat,” posted to YouTube on January 6, 2015.

“I had to make sure as soon as I got home from school to get the stuff ready for the kitchen, so my mom, when she came in she would just go ahead and start cooking,” Tiger explains in the video.

She talks about learning different ways of making frybread and substituting different ingredients depending on what was available.

Tiger learned a lot from elders, but also likes to “make things the way I would like for it to taste.”
