We are excited to announce the first event Virtual Intertribal Food Summit. While it’s going to be difficult to replicate the sensory experiences of past in-person events, this virtual format offers new opportunities to expand connections on a broader scale while working to expand and strengthen relations and providing essential educational support.
This virtual event will be a combination of online workshops, challenge activities (i.e. share your own cooking demo or document your planting strategies), and live roundtables. The event will be June 20th, but we will have additional content leading into and following the event.
The Intertribal Agriculture Council (IAC) is hosting the event in partnership with the Native American Food Sovereignty Alliance (NASFA) and the University of Arkansas’ Indigenous Food and Agriculture Initiative (IFAI), in addition to regional partners including the Wisconsin Tribal Conservation Advisory Council (WTCAC) and Michigan State University Extension.
Interested in getting involved? We’ll have multiple opportunities for both individuals and organizations. The event will be using the hashtag #foodsummit for all social media and other online posts.
