The I-Collective is an autonomous group of indigenous chefs, activists, herbalists, seed and knowledge keepers from across North, Central, and South America. We combine ancestral knowledge with modern techniques to create thoughtful dishes that reflect our rich tribal histories, reclaim ownership of our indigenous ingredients, and empower the next generation.
During Thanksgiving, a time that most Americans are gathering to celebrate a nostalgic story that erases this country’s history of genocide, the I-Collective pop up offers a different narrative that highlights indigenous communities’ resilience as well as our innovations in gastronomy, agriculture, the arts, and society at large. Strengthening inter-tribal relationships with food, agriculture, and technology are key components in our work to revise Thanksgiving in the American imagination and present a more truthful history.
Our work is guided by indigenous values that prioritize balance and reciprocity for all living things. For us, “thanksgiving” is not a singular event- we gather regularly to appreciate changing seasons and renew our sacred connections to the land and each other. Together, let’s celebrate a new Thanksgiving with an indigenous framework: collective promotion of a healthy food system that values people, traditional knowledge, and the planet over profit.
