Braiding the Sacred (BTS)

BTS is a network of indigenous corn keepers and cultures across Turtle Island working to steward sacred ancestral varieties and traditional farming practices. BTS is also providing small-scale farm equipment and seeds to Tribal Nations that have hosted Braiding the Sacred gatherings, in an effort to increase production efficiency and expand Tribal citizens’ access to traditional seeds. BTS will also submit soil samples from Tribal Nation farms to a soil testing service that focuses on soil microbiome diversity, then host a series of virtual events to share the information intertribally for discussion.
