On November 4th and 5th 2019, 180 delegates met to advance our collective efforts toward broad and systemic change across our food system.


We believe we can evolve our food system through

  1. re-integrating indigenous foodways;

  2. supporting farmer-led demonstration projects; and

  3. engaging technical assistance providers, consumers, policy makers, scientists and advocates. 

Check out the videos and photogallery below.

who were our delegates?

A traditional conference brings together individuals for education and inspiration.  A convergence brings together delegations with the purpose of building power and inciting action.  Attendees were coordinated in four groups:

Hands in the Earth (Farmers, Ranchers, Traditional Foodways Practitioners)



















Knowledge to Share (Scientists and Technical Advisors)










Voices with Vision (Policy Makers and Tribal Leadership)
