Description

Local foods are considered by many to be more nutritious as well as more sustainable, because they typically require less energy to grow, package and transport than commercial brands. They might also be more reliable in the event of a man-made or natural disaster so, in that respect, they can help make a community more resilient. But, for many Native Americans, local foods hold a special significance, inherently linked to their culture and the very sovereignty of their tribes.
