The 25th and 26th are the official conference days, where there will be presentations on a variety of topics surrounding food sovereignty, local foods, and community wellness.

The summit will conclude with a buffalo meat banquet and closing ceremony. Tickets for the banquet and closing ceremony are optional and may be available for the friends and family of our attendees. Our target audience for this summit are members of the local communities and Lakota and other Indigenous people from across the nation. Through their attendance at this conference, attendees will gain a broader knowledge of Lakota foods, Indigenous culture and values, and food policies and sovereignty.

Last year’s First Annual Lakota Food Summit was a huge success! We had over 300 people attend; 11 different tribes were represented, and we were able to reach a broader audience from the news coverage of various media outlets. We hope that you can join us this year.
