MTU Builds and Broadens Food Sovereignty with Indigenous, State and University Partners

The National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded funds for a gathering next fall focused on revitalizing Indigenous food traditions.

Michigan Technological University is partnering with the Intertribal Agriculture Council and local Indigenous communities including the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC) and the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians as well as Northern Michigan University, Ferris State University, Keweenaw Bay Ojibwa Community College and Michigan State University Extension. The NSF-funded event, Build and Broaden Indigenous Agriculture and Food Sovereignty Symposium, is one of only a few regularly occurring conferences in the nation dedicated to Indigenous food sovereignty and will take place in person if possible.
