Celebrating Anishinaabe traditions on World Environment Day

Anishinaabe traditions

Creating healthy, holistic, and sustainable relationships with the land

On this World Environment Day, we would like to highlight our partners in White Earth, Minnesota who are promoting self-reliance built on Anishinaabe traditions and healthy, holistic, and sustainable relationships with the land. As part of a virtual program last month, students learned about the traditions and health benefits of growing your own food while planting vegetable gardens at home with Diane from White Earth Tribal and Community College Extension Service. Then, Maggie and Grace from the White Earth Land Recovery Project shared the many ways in which their organization supports community gardening, celebrates Indigenous foods, and promotes community development through a good relationship with the earth. Miigwech Diane, Maggie, and Grace!
