On Tuesday, October 11th, 2023, Catalyst of San Diego & Imperial Counties led 19 participants through an all-day, immersive learning experience to learn more about the Indigenous Communities of San Diego. Participants met with tribal leaders and community members from the Campo Kumeyaay Nation and the Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel.
Participants joined us to explore the Campo Kumeyaay Nation and the Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel’s ongoing work, diversity of experience, and shared histories. We explored various topics during the day, including the critical role of food and food justice, its impacts on identity, health, wellness, culture, and much more.
In partnership with Coastal Roots Farm, we began the day with an overview of the role of regenerative agriculture within the food system and took participants through a tour of two truly unique and contrasting tribal communities.
