Intertribal Agriculture Council and Narragansett Food Sovereignty Initiative have partnered to create an event that will weave together traditional craftsmanship and tool making with planning and growing indigenous projects. Tours to Tribal farms, forests, and ocean shores will bring these topics to life.

If you grow, gather, cook, or sell indigenous foods – this event is for you. If you work in forest, waterway, air, soil, or native plant conservation – this event is for you.
