Porcupine, SD — Makoce Agriculture Development is developing a new and comprehensive model for a sustainable local food system that will support good health and create new economic opportunities on the Pine Ridge Reservation. This 5-year project will include community education and training, network strengthening and securing access to and building on tribal land to create community food centers. This will be done through five initiatives that will work across sectors and in partnership with one another to build an interconnected regenerative local food system. The ultimate aim of this work is to advance tribal sovereignty in the region by supporting tribal leaders and communities to build their own systems for wellness and modes of self-determination.
