The farm where I am sits on the traditional homelands of the Tano and Tiwa people. New Mexico is the ancestral and present-day home to the Apache, Dine, and Pueblo Tribes and peoples. Indigenous people from other Tribal nations also reside here. They have made and continue to make innumerable contributions to this region, in particular, millenia of thoughtful, effective land stewardship, in spite of suffering several centuries of colonization, land theft, and many other types of inhumane and violent treatment. I am committed to building partnerships with these neighbors, as I recognize the value in their knowledge, in rectifying wrongs of the past, and in creating space for their leadership is requisite to heal our planet.

Sommer Sibilly-Brown, VIGFC

just because you don't recognize my food doesn't mean I am in a desert
Yolanda Owens, The Outside (She/Her)
01:20:19
This ^
Glenna Gannon
01:22:23
To further direct and decolonize that term “food desert” others have been critiquing the use of desert, the deserts are full of amazing foods - food apartide is perhaps a better term
Glenna Gannon
01:22:35
Yes Adae!!
Brenn Scott - NAP Apprentice

Monopsony has a remarkably direct tie to this effort of decolonization. I can't believe how amazing powerful you as a panel and Ed have been in exposing us to a beautiful vision of a possible better future. Thank you.

The work before us is in regenerative and equitable policy-making as much as it it about regenerative agricultural and food-ways practices.

Sanjay, I can't wait to see "Food Chains". We obviously need to harness our power that is so essential to create the change needed for decolonization.Your film discusses Farmworkers in Immokalee, Fla. Have you heard of the book by Eric Liu, "You're More Powerful Than You Think: A Citizen's Guide to Making Change Happen"I am specifically wondering if any of the panel has guidance on how we can come together to support your efforts at decolonization.
Lucas Ramirez
01:45:37
Are there any programs you guys are apart of to educate people on more nutrient dense food?
Yolanda Owens, The Outside (She/Her)

Marina Belotserkovskaya

Adae, how do you feel about the field of regenerative economics?
Co-facilitator Bronagh Gallagher
01:46:44
if any of the panel has guidance on how we can come together to support your efforts at decolonization.
Jan-Willem Jansens (he/his)
01:48:08
What can we perhaps learn from ways of thinking about and doing outreach about other "resources" such as water, which are increasingly commodified? Wouldn't you agree that the perception of food as marketable commodity takes away personal and local and community connections (including knowledge and harvesting rights) to food?
Marina Belotserkovskaya
01:48:29
Elsie, do you feel indigenous ways of scientific inquiry and observation are gaining respect in academia?
Sommer Sibilly-Brown, VIGFC
01:48:46
How can the work done in Indian Country around sovereignty be shared with and support sovereignty efforts in the Caribbean? I feel like there are so much connection and sameness in the tactics used to rip us from our identity and foodways
Thistlethwaite, Rebecca D
01:49:27
A lot of tribal lands and reservations are leased out for grazing by non-tribal members. What are your thoughts on how my organization can help tribal ranchers to raise and finish animals and develop their own meat brands to feed their communities and maybe beyond?

It’s all about flow!!
NOTE TAKER Kit Brewer she/her
01:53:11
Yes, like why is money accumulating with and not flowing out of the 1%.
NOTE TAKER Kit Brewer she/her
01:53:44
Money = currency and value
NOTE TAKER Kit Brewer she/her
01:54:09
Both of which are by definition supposed to flow
Masha Vernik, Public Justice Food Project
01:54:18
How can we learn from indigenous people about regenerative agriculture methods, seeds, etc., perhaps even practice them as non-native people, without appropriating them?
Lucille R. Contreras
01:54:35
In regards to western agriculture, they talk about all the food they raise. but they don't acknowledge nature. what it took to raise that food. Ed
GroupMap Facilitator, The Outside - Stina Torres (she/her)

Decolonization that needs to occur in academia as well.
Susan Beal
01:57:07
Reductionism vs vitalism - it’s always been a struggle for me, working with the land and creatures and trying to work in the science place. It has been a struggle w/ mind, intuition, deeper and traditional knowings - and then balancing that with the information from the “golden archers of higher education”
Yolanda Owens, The Outside (She/Her)
01:59:05
*claps* Adae, this.Don't give me your mess and say that my knowledge doesn't work when I can't fix it the damag that you caused.

Susan Beal

The question about doing this - without being appropriative - is huge.
Annie Beall
02:01:06
how might y'all be envisioning reparations in regenerative agriculture movement? considering colonial land "ownership" and the momentum of the movement by recent inhabitants
GroupMap Facilitator, The Outside - Stina Torres (she/her)

“how do we define ‘who is included in the agriculture conversation’?”
Brenn Scott - NAP Apprentice

Some themes from our break out sessions: include the - include the right people and ask the right questions-the sense of community in ind culture is aspirational, being open to learning from their example and letting them lead-learning about soil health and continuing the conversation with ind folx and beyond.-question the food and environmental systems around us and reflect on how we perpetuate the system or choose to change it
