Promoting Healthy Outcomes Through Indigenous Food Systems

Promoting Healthy Outcomes Through Indigenous Food Systems

Comments

"Tribal leaders hoped their goal, which they call food sovereignty, could be met using only legacy farming techniques disconnected from the modern industrial food system, which many Native people see as unhealthy and damaging to the environment."

Promoting Healthy Outcomes through Indigenous Food Systems and Physical Activity focuses on sharing information and opportunities to promote, enable, facilitate, and honor food, growing and eating food for life.

USDA has opened grant applications under the Local Agriculture Market Program (LAMP). This funding is available through three channels, with the USDA including a focus on Farm to Institution (FTI) projects for two of the funding streams: The Local Food Promotion Program (LFPP) grants will develop food businesses which connect local food to institutions, and the Regional Food System Partnerships (RFSP) grant supports public-private partnerships that build and strengthen the viability of local or regional food economies. The third stream, the Farmers Market Promotion Program (FMPP), supports direct-to-consumer markets such as farmers markets and CSAs. USDA is hosting informational webinars for FMPP and LFPP on April 5th 1PM ET and for RFSP on April 6th 1PM ET. All applications are due Monday, May 16th 2022. Read our blog post for more background information and application resources!

Corn is a gift to the world from many generations of Indigenous agriculturalists who nurtured its transformation from a wild grass into hundreds of varieties of life-sustaining grains. For many Indigenous peoples throughout the Americas, corn plays a role in their origin stories, ceremonies, and identities today.

Those of you who have participated in our "Roots of Injustice, Seeds of Change: Toward Right Relationship with Native Peoples" workshops will remember the story of the Pawnee corn, recovered and thriving today through the power of friendship.

In Boulder, we grow beautiful Heritage Puebloan Corn on the Andrews Family Farm and give it as gifts to participants in our in-person workshops.

You can access our workshops through: https://friendspeaceteams.org/upcoming-events/

You can listen to "Reconciliation Rising: The Pawnee Seed Preservation Project", Podcast Episode #8 here: https://www.reconciliationrising.org/blurbs

Deb Echo-Hawk (Pawnee Keeper of the Seeds) and Ronnie O'Brien tell the story of the recovery of ten varieties of Pawnee corn, the importance of corn to the Pawnee people, and the blessings of friendship between the Pawnee and the Nebraska settlers.

We are shining light on one of our Farm to School producers on our Local Foods Map this week. Larry Schumacher of Larry’s Lettuce offers a wide variety of, you guessed it, lettuce. Based out of Fullerton, N.D., Larry had a dream of supplying local lettuce year-round to North Dakota residents. With the help of NDSU Extension Office, he created his very own hydroponic growing system that can produce ready to eat lettuce in just 3-4 weeks. With this quick technology, Larry was able to supply large amounts of lettuce to not only his customers through his website, but the schools.

NAFSA is seeking community input to help direct and develop our Food and Culinary Program! 🍓

NAFSA’s Food & Culinary program is cultivating a network of food preparers and is developing peer-to-peer learning opportunities that support the revitalization of these traditional foodways. As our staff continue to build off previous community listening sessions in order to develop this relatively new program, we are seeking feedback from community members who are engaged in food preparation at home or in a community setting. This questionnaire is a part of a larger assessment process that NAFSA is beginning which will inform the development of future programming and resources.

To participate, visit bit.ly/NAFSAfcqa (linked in our bio!) or scan the QR code included in this flyer. This questionnaire is estimated to take less than 10 minutes to complete. Survey responses are anonymous and individual responses will not be shared outside of the NAFSA program staff. The results of this survey will guide our Food and Culinary program planning for 2022 and will be shared with our community.

If you have any questions about the results, how this data will be used, or your participation in this survey, please contact Kristina Stanley at [email protected].

Project Overview

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) awarded the North Dakota State University’s (NDSU) Extension and Department of Public Health $568,750 through the CDC’s High Obesity Program for the first year of a five-year project titled Promoting Healthy Outcomes through Indigenous Food Systems. This grant will provide NDSU the opportunity to work with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in Sioux County and the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians in Rolette County through the project.

The High Obesity Program funds land-grant universities to leverage local relationships and Extension to implement evidence-based strategies to increase access to healthful foods and physical activity in counties with an adult obesity rate of more than 40 percent. The partners in Promoting Healthy Outcomes through Indigenous Food Systems hope to receive a total of $2.8 million from the CDC for the project during the next five years.

“Promoting Healthy Outcomes Through Indigenous Food Systems approaches obesity prevention through the context that indigenous people experience health disparities related, in part, to nontraditional ways of food production, consumption and inactivity,” says Megan Ditterick, coordinator of NDSU Extension’s Expanded Food and Nutrition Education and Family Nutrition programs. “In response to higher rates of obesity and chronic disease, tribal nations are creating more healthful communities through the reclamation of food systems and health promotion based on cultural traditions. This project seeks to build on those efforts.”
