Webinar: Food Sovereignty – Healthier Foods, Cultural Practices and Food Security
February 16 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm CST
Tribal Nations have been seeking to reestablish food sovereignty as a way to not only provide healthier and more traditional foods, but to also revitalize traditional food sources and mitigate the effects of potential human-made and natural disasters. COVID certainly raised the level of awareness of how a disaster, in this case a pandemic, can significantly impact and imperil food sources.
This webinar will focus on developing more traditional and healthy food sources in and for Tribal and indigenous communities, reducing food loss, and expanding food markets can be accomplished by Tribal Nations, Tribal communities, indigenous communities, or any interested community to enhance food security.
