Keywords:Indigenous Food Sovereignty, Land Trust, Native Food Pathways, Traditional Ecological Knowledge, TEK, Food Justice, Land Access, Sacred Site Protection
Indigenous food sovereignty is about much more than consumption choices, food access, and traditional knowledge; it is fundamentally about access to land for sacred ceremony and traditional practice. This article will highlight an innovative case study in indigenous land “rematriation” (returning the land to its original stewards and inhabitants) on the occupied lands of the Chochenyo and Karkin Ohlone peoples, also known as Oakland or the East San Francisco Bay Area of California, through a partnership with Sogorea Te Land Trust, an urban indigenous women-led land trust, and Planting Justice, a food-justice nonprofit based in Oakland.
