Eco3.24 Fond du Lac Reservation Food Sovereignty VISTA
Nagaajiwanaang (Fond du Lac Band) is one of the six Bands of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe. There are three districts that make up the Fond du Lac Reservation: Bapashkominitigong (Cloquet), Gwaaba’iganing (Sawyer), and Ashkibwaakaaning (Brookston). Today, our Band includes over 4,000 members. We have always been, and continue to be, a proud sovereign Ojibwe nation. We uphold all of our rights retained and agreed to within the 1825, 1826, 1837, 1842, 1847, and 1854 Treaties. The VISTA member will be based at the Fond du Lac Reservation’s Gitigaaning (gardens and farm), Na’enimonigamig (kitchen/cannery), and the Brookston farm location (orchard and future mashkode-bizhiki (buffalo)) location and will work with all Agricultural division staff throughout their term. Some travel to offsite trainings may occur. VISTA members will be serving on the Fond du Lac Reservation working on the Band’s food sovereignty efforts as it pertains to climate change and sustainability by working alongside the Agricultural Division. Activities will include program development, Tribal-based trainings, grant writing, and attending meetings to coordinate and support Tribal efforts to address poverty-related food insecurity. The VISTA member will be part of the Ecolibrium3 AmeriCorps VISTA cohort. Although each member is serving in a unique position, all cohort members will participate in VISTA specific activities such as regular cohort meetings, collaborative projects, professional development opportunities, and trainings.
