For what it's worth, The New Food Lover's Companion (Sharon Tyler
Herbst/Barron's/Second Edition/1995) offers:

fry bread  This specialty of many Southwest Indians (mainly Navajo and
Hopi) is made of flour, water or milk and salt.  It's formed into very thin
rounds, deep-fried and served hot.  It can be eaten with savory foods or
drizzled with honey and enjoyed as a sweet.


PS:  Maybe a Native American/Cheyenne scholar would be worth contacting....
