Indigikitchen, a portmanteau of Indigenous, digital, and kitchen, is an online cooking show dedicated to re-indigenizing American Indian diets using digital media. Founded by Mariah Gladstone (Blackfeet, Cherokee), Indigikitchen uses traditional Native foods to provide their audience with the important tools they need to find and prepare food on their own reservations, through innovative tools such as online cooking videos, recipe books, and cooking demonstrations in school classrooms. Indigikitchen was formed to foster an appreciation and love of traditional Native foods, strengthening connection to culture and healthy lifestyles. They have also expanded their outreach through supporting Native producers, building Indigenous gardens, and teaching about the background surrounding the colonization of Indigenous foodways.
