Indigenous Food Network
The Indigenous Food Network is a group of organizations with a shared mission: to create a food sovereign system within the Native American community in the Minneapolis Phillips neighborhood. The IFN connects food producers, chefs, organizations, and tribes, in order to create a coordinated effort to improve access to healthy and indigenous foods. The IFN was also created to combat health issues, such as diabetes, by reversing out the colonized diet and reintroducing traditional food into the diet and into the community. This includes teaching youth about traditional and culturally appropriate food practices.
