Tribal Sponsorships


Monday, August 31 – The Heard Museum

TOPIC: Food Sovereignty

First Things First will host Tribal Connections 2020 at the world-renowned Heard Museum on the evening of August 31, 2020. This year, Tribal Connections and two other events during the Summit will focus on the topic of food sovereignty – a restorative framework for health, community development and reconciling past social and environmental injustices that people of all cultures can relate to. Participants become both student and teacher, as they are invited to answer questions and share experiences or perspectives when working with children and families living on tribal lands.

 

93% of past Tribal Connections attendees rated this event as good to excellent.

“Wonderful, meaningful and thoughtful event.”

“Excellent. Enjoyed hearing perspectives on intersection of early childhood best practices and culture.”
