Episode 175. Profiles of Tribal Mobile Markets

In this episode of Voices from the Field, Tammy Howard, an agriculture specialist who works out of NCAT’s Rocky Mountain West Regional Office in Butte, Montana, talks with two tribal food officials about their approach to sourcing food and selling it through their “mobile markets” in rural areas of Minnesota and Mississippi. They also discuss their approach to providing healthy, local food to tribal members.

Zachary Paige is the coordinator of the White Earth Food Truck and facilitates the White Earth Food Sovereignty initiative of the White Earth Band of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe.

Daphne Snow manages the Choctaw Fresh program’s five farms on the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians Reservation and helps distribute produce to multiple locations through the reservation.
