M. Karlos Baca (Tewa/Diné/Nuche) is an Indigenous foods activist and the founder of Taste of Native Cuisine, an Indigenous food cooperative based out of the Southern Ute Reservation in Southwestern Colorado, and focusing on pre-colonial Indigenous foodways. His work has been featured in the Zagat Foodways series, on AJ+, and most recently in Edible Southwest Colorado. Although cooking is his passion, the majority of his time is spent teaching traditional foraging methods, Indigenous agriculture, seed saving, and cooking technologies to youth groups, teaching in schools, and working to help decolonize the food systems within those communities, while pushing forward with Indigenous food sovereignty initiatives on the tribal level, and is currently engaging in creating racial and food justice frameworks in the Four Corners region. He is foremost a son, a brother, father, and grandfather.
