Thanksgiving at Standing Rock

This fall our executive committee launched food sovereignty action by raising over $1600 for Indigenous foods, primarily wild rice, for the Standing Rock #NoDAPL Water Protector camps in ND. Just days before Thanksgiving our President, Dan Cornelius, delivered over 200 pounds of hand-harvested White Earth wild rice and Red Lake jams and syrups to the camp.


Indigenous foods were distributed by council members Dan Cornelius, Elizabeth Hoover and Nicole Yanes to the various kitchens, including Winona’s kitchen, Grandma’s kitchen, Pueblo camp, and Red Warrior camp, with the remainder used by Brian Yazzie as part of an amazing Indigenous Thanksgiving feast.

Big thanks to everyone who donated to this Indigenous Foods Campaign!
