California tribes are unique in geography, language, land, air, water and cultural resource issues. The land bases of California tribes range from urban centers to some of the most isolated regions in the country. This report examines current threats to traditional foods and tribal food insecurity due to the rapid culture change of California tribal communities in the past century. It explores some of the natural resources that continue to be utilized for subsistence food as well as the policies at the state and federal level that affect how California tribal communities can access their Aboriginal resources.
