Can Bannock represent Canadian national food? Perhaps. It originally came from Europe, specifically Scotland (Gaelic bannach, means morsel)1,  and became adopted by most Indigenous nations of Canada.2 The reason why this style of bread was not common in this part of the world is  because indigenous ingredients for bread did not include wheat flour and bannock does.3 European settlers brought the wheat seeds with them,as well a the word for this type of bread, and ‘recipe’.4  However, with time, Colonial Canada established Reserves and Residential schools, which prohibited Indigenous people to share their traditional knowledge and food, so the bannock sort of stuck around and recipes were adapted depending on the region.5… 873 more words
