Zuni Bread

 The Paywa family from Zuni have been making the traditional bread for a long time.  Their parents started the business in the 1970s and they have continued after their parents retired.  They have an oven that cooks over 100 loaves at one time.  Nan French (cousin) and I had our picture taken with Sister Parks.  Her family are the Paywas.  She shared that she was in Salt Lake City 2 weeks ago to be sealed to her husband.  They have been married for 4 years.  They met when they were serving missions when they were young.  They both went their own ways and married.  Brother Hart came looking for her and courted her.  We will be going to Zuni to church in the next few weeks and look forward to meeting her husband.
 We are holding yeast bread that just came out of the oven.
 This oven is not the Paywa's oven.  We found it while we were driving around Zuni.

This picture was taken of the bread in the Paywa's oven.

Zuni Indians are a different tribe than the Navajos.  Their reservation is about 30 miles south of Gallup New Mexico.    There's about 12,000 Zuni people.
