Keywords:Tribal Food Sovereignty, Food Systems, Coalitions, Traditional Foods, American Indian/Alaska Native Nutrition
American Indians and Alaska Native people experience large disparities in the prevalence of preventable, diet-related diseases directly associated with the lack of access to healthy, traditional food. The Northwest Tribal Food Sovereignty Coalition, a tribal-driven network, is an opportunity for tribes, tribal organizations, and allied partners to organize efforts that are driven by cultural revitalization, community empowerment, and the use of innovative strategies to improve the health of the people and reclaim food sovereignty. This reflective essay aims to discuss the process of the development, recruitment, and activities of this newly formed coalition.
