The Intertribal Agriculture Council pursues and promotes the conservation, development and use of our agricultural resources for the betterment of American Indians. They are hosting the Intertribal Food Sovereignty Summit at the Mashantucket Pequot Museum in Ledyard, Connecticut from August 20 – 24, 2018.
This summit will build “on momentum from the Food Sovereignty Summit and the growing network of indigenous people committed to food, agriculture, and natural resources…[to] weave together traditional crafstmanship and tool making with planning and growing indigenous projects. Tours to Tribal farms, forests, and ocean shores will bring these topics to life.”
“If you grow, gather, cook, or sell indigenous foods – this event is for you. If you work in forest, waterway, air, soil, or native plant conservation – this event is for you. Join us August 20-24, 2018 at the Pequot Museum in Connecticut to meet the other leaders in your field and share the knowledge you keep alive.”
