As we celebrate this historic national and state-recognized day for and with Indigenous communities, let's also recognize the indigenous knowledge, stewardship, conservation, and skills that exist within the NSAS network. 1011 News has begun to document this historic commemoration at the State Capitol.
NSAS member Dawn Hill (Choctaw, link to her bio) is Co-President of the Board of Directors and a full-time staff of the Tapestry Institute (https://tapestryinstitute.org/). The Tapestry Institute weaves Indigenous Knowledge to life through activities and publications that use Indigenous ways of knowing, learning about, and responding to the natural world.
If you would like to help highlight Indigenous voices, farmers, food system advocates- please reach out so we can continue to uplift diverse work and lives within our NSAS network. Nominate an indigenous speaker for the Feb 4-5 2022 Healthy Farms Conference, board member, 2022 Field Day, or grant partner.
