On February 22, representatives from Indigenous food projects around the country gathered at theTaos County Economic Development Corporation (TCEDC) with representatives from Slow Food USA(and Skyped in Slow Foods International) as well as the Christiansen Fund, to discuss the possibility and mechanics of establishing a Slow Foods chapter specifically for Indigenous people from Canada, the US, and Mexico. Participants felt that having a Slow Food association separate from the national organizations would give Native communities better opportunities to network, develop presidia to protect Indigenous foods, and send Native delegates to Terra Madre in Italy.
