A Call to Right Relations and Climate Resilience in Food Systems and Beyond

| 9 am - 1 pm ET | Virtual

Many in the New England region and beyond continue to reckon with the tragic history of what has been done to Indigenous peoples through the process of colonization and economic greed. Amidst genocide and cultural devastation, many tribes have been remarkably resilient and continue to hold on to their traditional teachings to guide them through unspeakable atrocities. With the #LandBack movement gaining momentum and growing support for tribal food sovereignty, FSNE recognizes that there is much to learn from Indigenous neighbors and partners, especially when it comes to being in “right relationship” with the planet and one another. During this session, FSNE is honored to welcome two Indigenous guests who have generously agreed to share how one might honor the spirit of longstanding treaties and respectfully engage with “all our kin.” Guests include Gae Ho Hwako Norma Jacobs, elder of the Wolf Clan of the Cayuga Nation, Longhouse Faithkeeper and author of Odagahodhes ; Erica Wood, Alaskan Native Iñupiaq plant ecologist and environmental/food justice advocate.
