for the Food Sovereignty Summit Sept. 23-26


First Nations Development Institute (First Nations) and the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin (Oneida) again are co-hosting the national Food Sovereignty Summit. It will be held September 23-26, 2019, at the Radisson Hotel in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

The Summit agenda has been updated! It’s an awesome mix of things to learn, do and otherwise experience. Check it out here.

The Food Sovereignty Summit began in 2013. It is the undisputed national forum for sharing and collaboration to build healthy food systems within Native American communities. Hundreds of attendees come from tribal communities all over that are actively involved in food sovereignty work, including caring for our land, sustaining food systems, and strengthening tribal sovereignty and partnerships between Native nations.

In addition to the numerous learning workshops, general sessions, traditional food tastings and networking opportunities, conference participants have the option of also attending an Experiential Learning Session at one of Oneida’s integrated food system sites. These Experiential Learning Sessions are extremely popular and fill up fast, and because space is limited, pre-registration is required. These sessions include:

  • Apple Orchard & Apple Fest
  • White Corn Husking Bee
  • Oneida Market and Oneida One-Stop Tour
  • Oneida Cannery Processing
  • Bee Keeping
  • Ecological Restoration

The conference workshops are divided into three tracks: Sustaining Food Systems, Strengthening Tribal Sovereignty, and Caring for Our Lands. Full information and a registration link can be found here.
