In Praise of Seeds and Hope
Excerpted from "Indigenous Food Sovereignty in the United States"
The seeds passed through a couple of pairs of hands before they got to the farm. But they started with Paul DeMain, a member of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin (board member of Honor the Earth) and the editor of News from Indian Country. DeMain says his seeds originally came from the Miami tribe in Indiana and are thought to be from a line that's somewhere between 1,000 to 2,000 years old.
SEED: Climate Change Resilience Gilbert Yazzie talks about seeds as life, where there is no beginning or end, and the importance of keeping farming and food alive to give thanks and share its goodness with all in harmony.
