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.
If you have questions, contact Emerald Hames on the IFAI staff at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call her at 479-575-5128.
