It has been two years since the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community launched Seeds of Native Health, our campaign to improve Native American nutrition. 

We are heartened that our initiative has helped elevate general awareness of this serious problem and funded many projects to sustain the Native food movement. 

We have also learned that so much more work still needs to be done. For that reason, our Community has committed an additional $5 million over the next two years to continue this work to help solve the food crisis in Indian Country, making Seeds of Native Health now a four-year, $10 million campaign to improve Native nutrition and food access. 

In recent months, we have been thrilled to fund several new, exciting partnerships and initiatives with the foremost experts and visionary funders in this field. We are pleased to share with you our semi-annual report, which summarizes those new projects as well as other work recently completed.
