Great Lakes Intertribal Food Summit
The Great Lakes Intertribal Food Summit is a regional, travelling summit. The annual event brings together several hundred native farmers, ranchers, gardeners, chefs, businesses, policymakers, tribal agriculture staff, native non-profits working in agriculture, food producers and tribal leaders to share and learn together around traditional food and agriculture and food sovereignty.
The Summit highlights traditional and contemporary Native American foods and culinary arts. Leading indigenous chefs from across North America will prepare and serve meals featuring indigenous and native-produced ingredients, some wild foraged from local areas. Indigenous chefs will also hold small, hands-on workshops showcasing traditional cooking knowledge and food preparation while mentoring attending youth. A native market showcasing tribal food products and indigenous arts will be featured throughout the event.
