Boozhoo! (Hello!)

Thank you for your time in completing this GLIFWC traditional Anishinaabe (Ojibwe/Chippewa) food interest survey! 

This survey is being conducted as a part of the newly awarded "GLIFWC Chippewa Ceded Territory Traditional Food Regulatory System Project", a 3-year Administration for Native Americans SEDS grant aimed at expanding the use of treaty harvested fish, game, and plants for food in tribal communities by increasing tribal self-regulatory capacity and sovereign control over activities governing the use of treaty resources.

This survey will allow project staff to incorporate important traditional Anishinaabe foods that tribal members feel are integral to add into an existing or new food code within their tribal communities. Your input is very valuable as your suggestions will determine important research for each traditional food, including potential contamination risks and food safety concerns. 

Questions 6-12 will ask about your interest in having access to some example traditional foods. Please rate each food based on your interest level, with STRONGLY being the highest or most desirable for access and RATHER NOT being the lowest or least desirable for access of that certain food. In each category, additional foods that you would like access to should be written in the comment section. Question 12 asks about traditional food products which is where you will find berry jams and jellies, not to be referenced in Question 10 under wild plants.

Finally, survey participants that include their contact information for the 2019 community roundtables on Question 15 will be entered into a drawing for 5 lbs of wild rice! Drawing will take place at the end of February 2018. 

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Owen Holly Maroney or LaTisha Coffin at 715-682-6619.
Miigwetch! Thank you!
