Abstract

In 2019, the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC) Natural Resources Department partnered with Michigan Tech and the Western U.P. Development and Planning Region to promote food sovereignty, strengthen wellbeing and cultural identity, and sustain knowledge for future generations through the Debweyendan (“believe in it”) Indigenous Gardens (DIGs) community initiative. Both tribal and non-tribal community members were welcomed to join a series of garden and harvesting workshops. This community initiative was made possible through a funding award from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund. This Story Map is a place to learn about intergenerational learning and access to healthy foods and medicines through this community driven food sovereignty initiative.
