This project’s success is contingent on cultivating relationships and providing support to local partners.  The region’s Indian Tribes and their communities and producers are the most central partners, but the project is also working with a host of other groups, individuals, and institutions.  Existing partners include:

  • Bad River Tribe
  • Bois Forte Band
  • Fond du Lac Band
  • Leech Lake Band
  • Red Lake Band
  • Red Cliff Band
  • Oneida Tribe of Wisconsin
  • Bay Mills Community College
  • Swinomish Tribe of Washington
  • Beidre Chocolates (Chickasaw Tribe of OK)
  • Native Naturals (Joe Jaramillo in Iselta Pueblo, NM)
  • Spirit Lake Native Products (Bruce and Tawny Savage at Fond du Lac, MN)
