After almost 3 years of hard work, we have successfully collaborated with indigenous farmers, healers, producers, and many more tribal businesses to create the first-ever PNW Tribal Agriculture Guide, a space where our communities can come to access tribal foods and products as well as educate ourselves through our centuries worth of ancestral knowledge. We hope that this resource will help to increase tribal food sovereignty and tribal economy while increasing awareness of the thriving indigenous communities in the Pacific Northwest.
This resource will continue to grow and we encourage anyone who would like to be included in the PNW Tribal Agriculture Guide to fill out a survey or email us directly. Furthermore, we will be releasing profiles for indigenous producers residing in Idaho and Washington in the Winter of 2023.
Here is a list of the categories of producers included in the PNW Tribal Agriculture Guide:
Tinctures, elixirs, salves, beauty products, teas, plant medicines, skincare, and full-spectrum care.
Meats, vegetables, fruits, plant medicine, fermented foods, dehydrated foods, packaged foods, seeds, bulbs, and more that are grown or raised on farms.
Smoked, canned, and jarred salmon and other freshwater fish or seafood.
Brick and mortar restaurants, catering food carts, permanent location food carts, cafes, coffee shops, and chefs.
Community gardens, food sovereignty gardens, communal space gardens, school gardens, and tribal gardens.
Collaboration of indigenous vendors that sell personally handcrafted wares and/or food items on a weekly, monthly, or annual basis.
