Seeds of Native Health: A Campaign for Indigenous Nutrition, has published more than 20 videos from its First Annual Conference on Native American Nutrition held September 26-27, 2016 at the Mystic Lake Casino Hotel in Prior Lake, Minnesota.
The conference was a collaboration between the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community and the University of Minnesota. It was organized by a planning committee of Native and non-Native scholars and practitioners led by the university’s Healthy Foods, Healthy Lives Institute.
The conference brought together more than 450 Native leaders, academics, and public health workers to collaborate and integrate traditional, Indigenous knowledge and Western, scientific research in order to combat the significant dietary factors contributing to profound Native health disparities.
The sold-out conference featured more than 30 world-renowned Indigenous nutrition experts and included participants from 32 states, five countries, and dozens of tribes.
