Indigenous Permaculture Training Course Information Session
Northeastern State University’s Center for Tribal Studies will host this informational session on its upcoming Indigenous Permaculture Training Course.
The informational session is February 12 in the Cherokee Casino in the Chota Conference Center in Tahlequah. The dates of the training course are March 7, 14-21, and 28.
The project will combine mainstream permaculture design curriculum with indigenous knowledge and practice. Participants will learn food and nutritional considerations for holistic health and well-being within an indigenous context. Indigenous knowledge holders will share traditional ecological knowledge regarding traditional foods, including culturally-appropriate planting and harvesting practices.
The goal is to provide aspiring and amateur American Indian farmers training in permaculture design, with an emphasis on traditional/indigenous practices. Participants will strengthen their [re]connection to cultural knowledge as it relates to the development of gardens/farms, traditional foods, sustainability, and food sovereignty. The project will increase participants’ awareness and understanding of job opportunities in permaculture design, agritourism, and economic opportunities in indigenous foods initiatives/restaurants.
