SOTS - Ndee Bikiyaa White Mtn Apache VISTA, Whiteriver, NM
 
 
 
Ndée Bíkíyáa, The People’s Farm is a sustainable farming project going in to its fifth (5th) year of operation. We have committed 24 acres to the cultivation of fruits and vegetables in means of garden beds, orchards and cornfields. A shift away from agriculture among the White Mountain Apache has led to an erosion of cultural identity and epidemic health issues, especially diabetes and obesity. The tribe’s Water Resource Department are working on an ambitious pilot project to revitalize agriculture. Farming plays a central role in our tribe’s history and culture, and we are determined to reinvigorate local farming practices and to foster entrepreneurship
