Second Indigenous Foods Knowledges Network (IFKN) meeting at Tohono O'odham Nation

The Indigenous Foods Knowledges Network (IFKN) will hold its second network meeting on Tohono O'odham homelands from March 12 to 15, 2019. The IFKN steering committee chose the theme of “Indigenous Knowledge” for this gathering. Amy Juan of the International Indian Treaty Council and Sustainable Nations, an organization dedicated to sustainable community building, will host the meeting. ELOKA research scientist Noor Johnson will also attend as the principal investigator for the NSF award funding this work.

The meeting will be held at the Himdag Ki: Way of Life House cultural center and museum 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.
