Native Food Sovereignty Fellows
 
 
 
The Native Food Sovereignty Fellows program will deploy a cadre of VISTA members to sites located throughout Indian Country to include Tribes in the Alaska, Rocky Mountain, Great Plains, Midwest, Southwest, Northwest, and Eastern Oklahoma, BIA Regions. We will place one or two VISTA members at each site where they will work on issues related to food security, economic sustainability, community resilience, health, and overall food sovereignty. VISTA members will work with the host site and the Indigenous Food and Agriculture Initiative to develop and implement capacity building food sovereignty projects, and a system of data metrics to measure project success.

Member Duties : VISTA workers will work alongside Tribal governments, community organizations and members to assist and strengthen food sovereignty and economic development projects at the local Tribal level in their assigned Tribal community. They will work seamlessly with the other Fellows and will receive ongoing support and assistance from IFAI.
