Indigenous Food Lab

OPENING IN 2020!

Indigenous Food Lab is a restaurant, education and training center that will serve as the heart of NATIFS work establishing a new Indigenous food system that reintegrates Native Foods and Indigenous focussed Education into tribal communities across North America. We envision a future of developing and supporting multiple tribally operated kitchens bringing cultural and nutritional revitalization across North America!
