The Intertribal Food Sovereignty Summit features food ways and success stories in Indian agriculture from the four directions, and offers a space for connecting and sharing. Participants will learn how to honorably harvest and create traditional tools, and how to fine tune natural resources policies to protect them for future generations. Tours will highlight conservation and food production practices from the ocean, forest, and farm. Workshops will cover how to access funding and technical assistance to improve the land you manage and how to access more value for your food products. All Native food producers, harvesters, chefs/cooks, and natural resource managers are encouraged to attend. The event is being organized in New England for the first time providing an opportunity for our local tribes to highlight their individual ventures collectively. This is an exciting way to share the network of growers, harvesters and producers in our region.
Early bird registration for Native food producers and community members ends 6/15/2018 and the room block cut off is 8/3/2018. Lodging info for Foxwoods Resort Casino will be available once you have registered.
