Chef Lois Ellen Frank of Red Mesa Cuisine reminds us that traditional Native American foods are nutritious and delicious, and that a return to an ancestral, plant-based diet is a way to reclaim health and wellness in Native communities. She shares a recipe for Three Sisters Stew.
For 2018, PWNA is providing firewood and winter fuel vouchers to Elders on the Rosebud Reservation. If you want to help Native American Elders stay safe and warm, join PWNA and NPRA by donating or sharing on social as we spread the warmth this winter.
New Year’s is a good time for looking back and looking forward. At the end, that’s all anyone tries for: reflection on the last year, and prayer for another good one. What will you do better this year?
2017, Partnership With Native Americans wrapped up the year with our annual holiday services, including providing holiday meals and present-filled stockings for children and Elders in our program partners’ reservation communities.
PWNA serves approximately 1,000 reservation partners, focusing on health and nutrition, animal welfare, education, and emergency services, as well as holiday support.
We filled 800 stockings, but this is only a fraction of the thousands of gift bags and stockings PWNA provides annually to children and Elders. In fact, in 2016 PWNA provided holiday stockings for 11,730 Elders and nearly 27,500 children in reservation communities.
… the food pantry in Polson, Montana relies on support from PWNA during the holiday season, when they see a spike in the number of families needing food. In addition to food, PWNA’s holiday services also include thousands of gifts and stockings delivered to partners for distribution in Native communities.
“Healthy food choices are in abundance for most Americans, but that’s not always the case for our Native American citizens,” said Rafael Tapia, Jr., PWNA Vice President of Programs.
PWNA compiles the favorite stories from Indian Country, covering Thanksgiving, Native American myths and misconceptions, and Native cultures, foods and relics.
With donations made from Nov. 21 to Nov. 28, you can help PWNA fight food insecurity and brighten the holidays for Native American Elders. Visit CrowdRise now for GivingTuesday 2017.
