This panel discussion brings together young Indigenous leaders to address the role that traditional ecological knowledge plays in their work as farmers and entrepreneurs. With the onset of COVID-19 and ongoing issues of climate change, investing in sustainable agriculture and food production more important than ever.
Moderated by Michaela Pavlat (Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians). Panelists include Kelsey Ducheneaux-Scott (Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe), Jack Poshano (Hopi) and Marco Ovando (Shoshone-Paiute Tribe).
This program is part of the museum’s Living Earth Virtual Festival, which features Native experts who work to create innovative, robust and ecologically sound food systems and agriculture businesses.
This project is made possible through the generous support of the Native American Agriculture Fund.
Youth in Action: Conversations About Our Future is a monthly program led by young Native activists and changemakers from across the Western Hemisphere who are working toward equity and social justice for Indigenous peoples. Topics vary from month to month. Advance registration is not required for the spring 2021 programs.
