The Montana Indigenous Food Sovereignty Initiative (MIFSI) is distributing seed bundles to our relatives in MT Indian Country this Spring. When garden see shortages have developed last year, they did a grassroots seed and seedling drive for our relatives. This year, they have procured non-GMO, organic, and ancestral seeds and are building seed bundles for family and community gardens. They hope that through distribution of seed bundles, seed saving by all, and the development of an ancestral seed cooperative, they will add momentum to food sovereignty with families and communities. Seed bundles going to families, schools and community gardeners can be ordered through the MIFSI Facebook page. Bundles will be shipped through USPS the first week of March. Their Facebook page also serves as an online Indigenous gardening community where you will find talks by expert Native gardeners and we can support one another's successes.
If you are a household that does NOT have internet, please be patient. It will be a detailed process. Range needs to verify the locations and to make sure there is someone at the residence for installation. Some locations on our list, require a complete line to be dug and then connected and that takes time. Range has a list from LDPS, and they are being very methodical and steadfast in their approach, so please do not call Range. We are truly getting household names and physical addresses to Range as soon as possible, and they are working diligently on the list we provided. Patience and understanding is what is needed right now. If you have any questions, or a household to add to our list, please direct your question or concerns to Marcy Cobell @ Superintendent's Office 477-6305 x 1003 or Brandon @ LDPS Tech 477-6305 x 1010 **Also please remember we have Hot Spots installed via Projectconnect at the Elementary Parking Lot, HS P0arking Lot, and the Tribal Building if your child/student needs internet for the time being. Thank you for your patience and support in this endeavor.
Just a reminder to get your sports physical as soon as you can!
