Registration is open for the Second Annual Native Food Sovereignty Summit that will be held at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin, April 14-17, 2014.
Once again, First Nations is a proud co-sponsor of this important event. Our co-sponsors are the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin, the Intertribal Agriculture Council and Northeast Wisconsin Technical College.
Last year’s conference was fully booked and got rave reviews, so register early to ensure you have a seat at this one. Online registration and information is at this link: http://www.firstnations.org/conferences/2014/food/summit.html
There will be two training tracks: Track 1 is Applied Agriculture, and Track 2 is Outreach. Attendees can attend sessions in just one track, or they can customize their experience by selecting from any of the sessions. There are also two optional Field Working Sessions on Thursday, April 17 from 1 to 5 p.m., which will be held at the Oneida Farm, Tsyunhehkwa and the cannery.
Also check the website if you are interested in becoming a vendor or sponsor, or if you want to showcase any traditional foods from other tribes and regions, or want to share samples of your packaging, marketing materials or products.
