Bishop Paiute Native Food Gardens

The Bishop Paiute Tribe in the Owens Valley of California is revitalizing the use of traditional foods in their community and re-establishing traditional food gathering areas. Elders in the community are leading traditional food field trips to share their knowledge across generations. The Tribe is reconstructing food gathering gardens on lands where an ancient irrigation system was vitally integral to community food security pre-20th century, further engaging the community in its local seed library, and nurturing young people to become the new generation of cultural food stewards of the Bishop Paiute Tribe.
