Tukya (Hopi Baked Prairie Dog)

      Title: Tukya
 Categories: Native, Pixel
      1 fresh-killed prairie dog per person
      seasonings (personal preference; traditional seasonings are nankopsie, tuitsma, or herbal seasonings)
         Kill prairie dogs; immediately singe the fur completely to get rid of fleas.  Scrape
 the carcass to remove any fur or ash, and wash it well with clear water.  Dress as you 
 would a rabbit and leave whole.
 Stuff body cavity with salt, pepper, and seasonings.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for
 three hours, or until tender.
