Three Tribes Selected as Grantees for First Nations’ “Changing Native Food Economies” Project

Longmont, Colorado, May 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — First Nations Development Institute (First Nations) has selected three grantees under its previously announced “Changing Native Food Economies in Minnesota and North Dakota” project, which was made possible through a grant from the Otto Bremer Trust.
 
Under the grant, which was announced in December 2018, First Nations said it would select and support three Native American programs in Minnesota and/or North Dakota to help them reclaim control of their community food systems as a means for creating strong, diverse and resilient Native economies. These tribes will build community connections and identify market opportunities that will, in the long term, reduce economic leakage from local food systems and, in so doing, strengthen tribal sovereignty. The participants will build on already-conducted community food assessments that identified related assets and set the stage for this work.
