Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), and coordinated by the University of Colorado and the University of Arizona, the goal of the Indigenous Foods Knowledges Network (IFKN) is to "develop a network comprised of Indigenous leaders, community practitioners, and scholars (both Indigenous and non-Indigenous) who are focused on research and community capacity related to food sovereignty and Indigenous Knowledge." IFKN is accomplishing this work in part through a series of meetings; the inaugural meeting was held in March 2018 at the Gila River Indian Community in Arizona. IFKN members, partner organizations, and the group's charter can be viewed on the website, in addition to a copy of the NSF-funded proposal that initiated the IFKN. Readers may also be interested in a section of the website entitled "Our Food and Knowledge Stories." Currently, there are about a half dozen stories, ranging from personal reflections to meeting reports to a short video, "The Resiliency of Hopi Agriculture: 2000 Years of Planting."
