Ukwakhwa (Our Foods)

At our 10-acre farmstead on the Oneida Reservation, our goal is to serve as a place to host events where the community comes to learn about planting, growing, harvesting, seed keeping, food preparation, food storage, as well as making traditional tools and crafts. With these goals in mind, an Oneida faithkeeper named our property Ukwakhwa: Tsinu Niyukwayayʌthoslu (Our foods: Where we plant things). One of our current projects is building a certified kitchen to help the community have more access to indigenous foods and to build their skills and confidence to process their own foods.
