Does anyone know which tribes began the making of tizwin? Is it a part of native american culture? Tizwin is beer made from fermented sprouted corn.

Never even heard of it. Most Indians don't drink, contrary to popular belief; we have a low resistance to alcohol poisoning.

Sorry, you never heard of it. Maybe someone else has and can answer my questions.

I do know several tribes brewed/made their own kinds of alcoholic drinks but I don't know about corn things per se.
It's a common fact about the alcoholic beverages, and I do think some central and south american tribes are still making it from what's available.

Thanks for responding. I first came across the word "tizwin" and "windego" (sp?) years ago, when reading about native american traditions, and it stuck with me. At the moment, I cannot recall the name of the novel in which these terms were mentioned.

Thanks again.

Well, neither word is Comanche, so I can't help you. I hope you find out what tribe/language they belong to.

Oh that's OK, I was happy speaking with you. It was just a passing topic I thought I'd throw out, just to see what interest it brought. If I remember the novel, I can probably find which tribe was being spoken about.

Thanks.

Hi Blackgold! I hope you don't mind me dropping by. :-)

To all: I am not a Native American (and no wannabee either) but I have always been interested in Native American culture and history, especially of the Southwest. I just found your wonderful little forum on Delphi. It seems there is a lot to learn and enjoy here.

Tiswin, tizwin or tulapai is a native beer which was developed by several tribes in the Southwest, e.g. the Apaches. Among the Tarahumaras of Chihuahua in Mexico it is known as tesgüino. The Tohono O'odham (formerly Papago) of southern Arizona also make a mildly alcoholic beverage out of the saguaro fruit, which is consumed during their traditional harvest festivals.
