Food Revolution

--- Sicangu Food Sovereignty Initiative ---

Food Revolution brings you stories of food sovereignty from community members and tribal food producers working to build a more just, equitable, and regenerative food system for the Sicangu Lakota Oyate - the Burnt Thigh Nation. Together, we’re building tribal sovereignty through food - and we’ve set a place at the table just for you. Join us and be a part of the Food Revolution. Produced by the Sicangu Food Sovereignty initiative, with new episodes every other week.
