This report shares outcomes resulting from the “Food as Economic Development in Native Communities” project conducted by First Nations Development Institute between 2014 and 2016, and it serves to highlight emerging models and best practices observed during the project. Among other things, it showcases strategies that augment existing tribal efforts to increase economic development opportunities while regaining control of local food systems in a manner relevant to the challenges often observed in Native communities with respect to access to capital, geographic isolation, and limited infrastructure. The project was generously supported by the Otto Bremer Trust.
