Oneida Nation Promoting Food Sovereignty Among Indigenous Communities

Updated Sep 5, 2023

The Oneida Nation is developing a model of programming that promotes traditional food ways, agriculture, and cultural identity among Indigenous communities as a comprehensive approach to reducing health disparities and improving health and health care.

Through this initiative, the Oneida Nation is demonstrating how traditional food ways connect community members to their land, history, and culture, and serve as an important part of health care.
