The Summit brings American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian youth to the University of Arkansas Fayetteville campus for a ten-day educational experience.

The students, who represent tribes across Indian Country, engage in classroom learning and field trips, and received specialized legal and land use training geared toward Native farmers and ranchers.
The leadership building curriculum allows students an opportunity to develop their leadership skills, to enable them to continue their journey to becoming an advocate and leader for a resilient, robust and interconnected future in Indian Country food systems.

All food, lodging, instructional materials and field trip costs are provided. Depending on the number of students, travel scholarships will also be provided.

The NADA & IDHC webinars are back in action!

Please join us for the next National Aboriginal Diabetes Association and Indigenous Diabetes Health Circle webinar on Tuesday, April 9, 2019, at 12:00PM central.

This webinar will feature T’uy’t’tanat Cease Wyss, known as “The Indigenous Plant Diva”. T’uy’t’tanat is from the Squamish First Nation and is a media artist, cultural facilitator, and ethno-botanist, traditionally trained in this field by Elders. Her work involves site-specific and culturally focused teaching with storytelling as her means to sharing knowledge. T’uy’t’tanat was named the 2018 Indigenous storyteller in residence at the Vancouver Public Library, and is known for her ‘plant walks’ in Stanley Park. Cease Wyss and Anne Riley are embarking on a City of Vancouver public art collaboration to remediate various sites around the city that are affected by toxins in different ways, using plants, mulch and myco-remediation techniques and Indigenous methods of sustainable agriculture.

T’uy’t’tanat grew up learning about the plant foods and medicines of the Pacific Northwest Coast. Living in the city of Vancouver, T’uy’t’tanat is used to practising her culture in an urban environment; growing, harvesting and teaching about the Indigenous plants of this rainforest ecosystem, and offers a beautiful vision of how to learn from the land and the plant teachers all around us. T’uy’t’tanat will share her knowledge of plants – both food and medicinal plants of the Pacific Northwest coast. T’uy’t’tanat started Harmony Garden with the guidance and feedback of her Elders. It is a community garden and food forest, with the aim of sustaining the Skwxwu7mesh people in the community. Located on the Xwemelch'stn Uximixw, also known as the Capilano Reserve, T’uy’t’tanat urges community members to participate in the land based learning that happens there. "I do it all for the children. They are our future." To register for the webinar, please visit the following link:
