Northern Cheyenne Tribe shows love for 'commod' cheese


As promised in an earlier column, I now will mostly pen about things other than tribal politics. A really ‘goot’ topic this week, was suggested by my Cheyenne partner. As he is modest, wanting to stay in the background, his real name cannot be revealed. “Don’t print my name,” he insists. (Jokes, most Cheyenne readers already know who he is).

This little story revolves around commodity cheese, the “gold standard”, which we call “best of the world cheese” in high demand by creative Cheyenne chefs. It is easily obtained by the many folks, who elect for commodities, a short version: “Commods”, rather than food stamps and the ubiquitous EBT cards.
