Native Food Sovereignty Summit Oct. 26-29

Posted in Uncategorized on August 24, 2015 by landdgrantblog

It’s Only Two Months Away!
Register Now for the Native Food Sovereignty Summit Oct. 26-29

First Nations Development Institute (First Nations) and the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin are again co-hosting the Third Annual Food Sovereignty Summit in Green Bay, Wisconsin, October 26-29, 2015, at the Radisson Green Bay Hotel and Conference Center. At the event, Native American communities come together to learn from one another in order to promote Native health, wellness and food sovereignty.

This conference sold out the last two years, so be sure to guarantee your attendance by registering now at www.firstnations.org/summit. You’ll find all the information you need there, including conference logistics, lodging information and the agenda, as well as sponsorship details. (In previous years, the conference was held in April, but this year it’s in October to incorporate the Oneida Nation’s traditional white corn harvesting.)

This year’s event will feature three tracks: Applied Agriculture, Community Outreach, and Products to Market.  Native farmers, ranchers, gardeners, businesses, policymakers and other practitioners from around the U.S. will share information, program models and tools to meet growing and marketing challenges, as well as provide inspiration, mentoring and networking opportunities.

Among special features of this year’s summit are Experiential Learning Field Sessions (farm practices, food preservation, food handling, organic certification, etc.), a Chefs’ Corner (culinary creations from various tribal regions), and a “Connect the Dots” session to connect mentors and mentees with the goal of building healthy Native communities.

As in the past, the Food Sovereignty Summit is generously supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

Applicants working on doctoral dissertations and those at the post doctoral level are encouraged to apply, but any proposal for advanced research will be considered. Projects involving alternative uses of archival records, such as background research for multimedia projects, exhibits, documentary films, and historical novels, are also eligible.

Preference is given to projects that focus on little-used holdings not available electronically or on microfilm and have a high probability of publication or other public dissemination.
