The history, connection to place, and breadth of culture amongst indigenous communities in San Diego County is deep and intricate. There is much we can learn to better understand the role philanthropy can play in supporting the self-determination and sovereignty of first nations.
Join us for a unique session with the Campo Kumeyaay Nation and the Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel, and an all-day exploration of their on-going work, diversity of experience, and shared histories. The day will provide a glimpse into the realities of tribal members’ lived experiences and the goals and visions of their respective nations. We will explore various topics during the day, including the key role of food and food justice, its impacts on identity, health, wellness, culture, and much more.
In partnership with Coastal Roots Farm, we will begin the day with an overview of the role of regenerative agriculture within the food system and take participants through a tour of two truly unique and contrasting tribal communities.
With the safety of our community in mind, we utilize a standard set of protocols for all in-person events. We ask all participants to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (waived for religious or medical exemptions) and to wear masks indoors. Please view our safety protocol in full here.
Sessions are available at no charge to anyone with a paid registration for Catalyst’s 2021 annual conference. A fee of $150 for members and $250 for non-members per session is required at registration.
