Red House BBQ Opens Community's Eyes To Different Way Of Life
By Kimberly Foley
"It's a lifestyle," said Mano Lujan, owner of Red House BBQ. "It's how we live; it's how we believe."
Now Lujan has found a way to share his culture with his entire community by adding barbeque to traditional Native American foods.
"We didn't just eat acorns and buffalo," said Lujan. "We actually have a cuisine. It's simple, but simple is good."
"It was about understanding," said Lujan. "It was about people kind of learning about my culture in a new way."
