Twenty-two Native American frybread makers, representing all twenty-two federally recognized tribes in Arizona, convene in Flagstaff to compete for the first ever, first annual, state of Arizona Frybread Championship! The film takes a larger then life turn as four contestants (Tatanka Means, Teresa Choyguha, Dey & Nite and Camille Nighthorse) battle their way to compete for the title in the championship round. This is the frybread competition unlike any you have ever seen, and the movie you can almost taste!

Why Frybread?

“I wanted to make a movie that gave us an excuse to shoot on numerous reservations, and make new friends. I thought frybread was a good thing that had the potential to bring people together. I liked the idea of a mockumentary frybread contest, and I wondered why there wasn't a real national frybread contest. I didn’t realize how big frybread really was..."
