Native Indian ancestry
"Gesatho" is a Native name for a traditional Southwest Indian meal also known as "Apache stew" or "Indian tacos."
It consists of a mix of boiled or roasted meat, potatoes, and other vegetables. Depending on the community, this
stew is either folded in a tortilla, ladled on top of a piece of frybread, or poured into a bowl and eaten with a spoon.
The name "gesatho" comes from words for meat stew in the Apache and Navajo languages.
