Second IFKN network meeting at Tohono O'odham Nation

When

March 12 - 15, 2019

The Indigenous Foods Knowledges Network will hold its second network meeting on Tohono O'odham homelands from March 12 - 15, 2019. The IFKN Steering Committee chose the theme of “Indigenous Knowledge” for this gathering. The meeting will be hosted by Amy Juan of the International Indian Treaty Council and Sustainable Nations, an organization dedicated to sustainable building and community building.

The meeting will be held at the Himdag Ki "Way of Life House" cultural center and museum and at the University of Arizona, with site visits to a number of local organizations. The meeting will involve around 22 community hosts and 25 visitors from Indigenous communities across the US Southwest and Alaska. Participants will exchange perspectives based on their own regional and local work on food sovereignty, sustainability, and cultural connection to place.
