Pokagon Band of Potawatomi co-hosts Great Lakes Intertribal Food Summit

NOW: Pokagon Band of Potawatomi co-hosts Great Lakes Intertribal Food Summit

NEXT:

DOWAGIAC, Mich. -- The 2019 Great Lakes Intertribal Food Summit, co-hosted by the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians, kicked off on Thursday.

The traveling four day event brings hundreds of native people together to learn about agriculture.

Every year, the experience teaches its guests about foraging, carving and cooking.

The public is welcome to join in several different workshops that are offered on sustainability, food security, production practices and traditional harvest.

“A lot of it is networking because all indigenous communities all live in different areas and this is a chance for us to bring in people from other areas to teach us and we get to meet them, learn, and when this event is done, just the networking that’s done alone is…you can’t buy this type of stuff,” Pokagon Tribal Council Member Gary Morseau said.

Representatives from the Intertribal Agriculture Council, Native American Food Sovereignty Alliance and Native Food Advocates helped co-host the summit.

The summit is located at the Pokagon Band’s Rodgers Lake campus in Dowagiac and will last until Sunday, April 28.
