Chia, Cooking the Native Way

    Indian tribal members and collaborators committed to the revitalization of native foods,

    medicines, culture and community. We offer ways to reconnect with the land through

    gathering, gardening, and cooking native foods and the preparation of medicinal plants

    plants, plant communities, and the land for the future generations of all species.
