Resources and events from NCAI’s Tribal Food Sovereignty Advancement Initiative, which supports the development and strengthening of tribal nations’ efforts to build and protect the Indigenous food systems that have long sustained their citizens, communities, and cultures.

Among other activities, TFSAI empowers tribal food sovereignty by: creating a forum for tribal leaders to share best practices for advancing food sovereignty; assisting tribal governments with developing food sovereignty and related policies; advocating for federal policy changes needed to improve the quality and accessibility of food assistance and cultivation programs; protecting and sustaining tribal lands, waters, and natural resources integral to tribal food systems; and providing materials to help build the knowledge base and skills of current and aspiring Native farmers, ranchers, and other food providers.
