The Fond du Lac Agricultural Division was officially established in 2022, though the food sovereignty work has been ongoing for decades. The Agricultural Division’s primary mission is to help support and empower the Fond du Lac community to reclaim and build a sovereign, holistic food system rooted in Anishinaabe values that is environmentally responsible and empowers a thriving, resilient community.
Tribal food sovereignty builds on the efforts of generations of Ojibwe seedkeepers, gardeners, blueberry pickers, fire keepers, medicine gatherers, entrepreneurs and so many more committed to preserving Anishinaabe lifeways and providing for our people through food for millenia. The Agricultural Division is one entity of the countless necessary to continue this legacy. We are very proud of the many individuals, partners, and programs that have laid the foundation of this work and are excited and inspired to continue to provide education, resources, and land access to the community through various programs and initiatives.
The Fond du Lac Band has three community districts including:
- Bapashkominitigong (Cloquet)
- Gwaaba’iganing (Sawyer)
- Ashkibwaakaaning (Brookston)
