Angela Comeaux

I am a founding member of both Bvlbancha Collective and Okla Hina Ikhish Holo, two Indigenous Southeastern femme and non-binary collectives working in mutual aid, medicine and food sovereignty, and rebuilding ancestral trade routes. I am on the board of directors for the Alabama Sustainable Agricultural Network, a grassroots network of farmers, consumers, and agriculture-related organizations, all committed to promoting sustainable agriculture in Alabama. I am also a seed grower for the Ujamaa Cooperative Farming Alliance, a collective of emergent and seasoned growers who cultivate heirloom seeds and grow culturally relevant plants for food, healing, and textiles. Most importantly, I am the founder of Hvrvnrvcukwv Ueki-honecv (Hummingbird Springs) Farm, a fallow 120-year-old peanut farm that I, my partner, and community are transitioning into an Indigenous food forest. The goal at Hvrvnrvcukwv Ueki-honecv Farm is to fully reclaim and resurrect Indigenous agricultural practices that have been sleeping and to welcome those practices back to their homelands.
