Food Sovereignty Summit

Our first major market event was the Food Sovereignty Summit organized by the Oneida Nation, First Nations Development Institute, the Intertribal Agriculture Council, and Northeast Wisconsin Technical College.  The Summit was a major success with approximately 300 participants connecting with one another while learning about various topics in three different tracks.

The event was an excellent opportunity to visit some great Tribal operations, including Tsyunhehwka, Oneida’s traditional and organic operation, that grows and processes the Oneida white corn.

The sales booth was a great chance to work out the kinks in our setup and begin to spread awareness of the project.  Several products sold out, and many people are inquiring about larger future orders and ways to partner with their local communities.
