First nations food–rebuilding resilience across the land

A-Dae Romero Briones is director of the Native Agriculture and Food Systems initiative at First Nations Development Institute. She was born and raised in Cochiti Pueblo, NM and also comes from the Kiowa Ware/Komalty/Amauty Family from Hog Creek, Oklahoma. A U.S. Fulbright Scholar, A-dae received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Policy from Princeton University, and received a Law Doctorate from Arizona State University’s College of Law, in addition to her LL.M. degree in Food and Agricultural Law from the University of Arkansas. We talk about programs across the country that are helping native people build healthier food systems and to strengthen the traditions that have kept these systems alive even during the most devastating periods of colonization.
