Join us for this year’s Living Breath Indigenous Foods and Ecological Knowledge Symposium. This year we have opened our doors to invite you to two days of amazing panels and break-out sessions in honor of Native Youth and Elders. Elders have much to give and pass on. What are the best ways to listen to and honor our knowledge bearers? How do young people look to the future of our Native nations and communities and their sacred relations with their place and their planet? This year we make the conversation between elders and youth prominent! Join us to share knowledge, experience and expertise on tribal food sovereignty initiatives, food justice and security, traditional foods and health, indigenous foods systems and global climate change. We invite all of you who hold these issues dear to join us for this important conversation. Your voice is welcomed!
* A link to the two-day schedule will be uploaded to the American Indian Studies website soon.
