Native Harvest for a Modern World

Credit Rita Daniels

Fri. 11/23 8a: For centuries, the Taos Pueblo people lived entirely off their land.  Sustainable agriculture was a way of life, but U.S. federal policies helped put an end to that. Food wasn’t grown at the pueblos; it was trucked in. Traditional farming gave way to government subsidies and obesity rates soared. But recently, a surprising agricultural renaissance has taken root across the pueblos. Rita Daniels takes us to the Taos Pueblo to share a story of rebirth and renewal.
