About

Off the Rez is owned by longtime couple Mark McConnell and Cecilia Rikard. Mark’s mother spent her childhood growing up on the Blackfeet Rez in Browning, Montana and emparted the culture to her children.  Mark grew up eating traditional frybread and Indian tacos at family gatherings and powwows.  In Seattle, he searched for Native cuisine and came up empty. He and Cecilia then pursued their passion project of opening Seattle's first Native food truck that employed Blackfeet frybread recipes and Indian tacos made true to form. Fortunately, praise and press were quick to follow and they continue to serve up delicious daily creations that have garnered a cult following. They also offer catering from casual to formal for distinct events inspired by a beautiful heritage and culture.
