This conference will orient researchers and public health practitioners to Indigenous food sovereignty, its value in facilitating health in Indigenous communities, and ways to connect food sovereignty initiatives with health data in your communities!


Academic researchers, students, public health practitioners, tribal health date workers, tribal leadership, food and agriculture practitioners, community members, and anyone interested in the Indigenous food sovereignty movement.

Day One:

Learn how Indigenous food sovereignty supports health in Native communities, with real world case studies presented by leaders from the National Congress of American Indians and community members on the ground implementing these initiatives. You’ll also be provided with information on funding resources and strategies.

Day Two:

Learn about Indigenous food sovereignty initiatives in diverse environments, including urban settings, and how communities have combined research with food sovereignty initiatives to measure health improvements. You’ll also learn how to assess the costs and benefits of these initiatives within your communities and ways to either sustain your current initiatives or get new food sovereignty initiatives underway.
