Creating awareness and understanding, and encouraging change within the community to inspire healthy and sustainable community lifeways.
The food sovereignty initiative is dedicated to building access to local food and the necessary infrastructure for a farm on the Menominee Indian Reservation. The Menominee have a little known but long history of agricultural experience and knowledge which led to community sustainability. We are working to reclaim our food sovereignty by tackling some of the biggest issues our community faces.
Menīkānaehkem members involved in this initiative are currently attending training related to indigenous farming, food sovereignty, seed saving etc. Stop by anytime to visit our organic, regenerative garden!
We hold seasonal pre-contact feast potluck style for the community. The purpose of these feasts are to engage the community in traditional foods, conversation and to learn from one another.
