ICYMI: Our 3rd Annual Indigenous Dinner - “Healing Through Indigenous Foodways” was a major success! There are many Bears Ears supporters, partners, sponsors, friends and allies to thank for making this year’s dinner exceed our expectations! We especially want to thank our Indigenous Food Activists Karlos Baca (Tewa/Nuche/Diné) and Josh Nez (Diné) and other cook volunteers for preparing, cooking and elevating our Indigenous cuisine experience.

We celebrated our #IndigenousFoodHeals dinner on Monday - Indigenous Peoples’ Day and thank attendees as well as sponsors @harmonsgrocery , @patagoniaslc , @patagonia , @icollective2019_ , @slowfoodutah , @utebison @krclradio and @blendedtable .

We also want to thank our Native leadership, including Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez @nezlizer2018 for your food sovereignty message! Your efforts support our Traditional Foods Program, which is directed by Cynthia Wilson @cynskn .

From eating the 11,000 year old Four Corners potato, bison from @utebison and veggies from other Indigenous farmers, our palate and stomachs are now cleansed with pre-contact foods. As we say in our various Indigenous languages from Bears Ears - Askwali, Ahéhee’, Tog’oiak, Kwakwhay, Elahkwa and Wado. #indigenousfoodheals #bearsearsheals #standwithbearsears #honortribes 🐻👂🏽 📸 MacNeal Crank
