Native Lights is a weekly, half-hour radio program hosted by Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe members and siblings, Leah Lemm and Cole Premo. Native Lights is a space for people in Native communities around Mni Sota Mkoce -- a.k.a. Minnesota -- to tell their stories about finding their gifts and sharing them with the community.
Today Leah and Cole chat with Dani Pieratos of Harvest Nation, an indoor CSA aeroponic farm concept in northern Minnesota. She hails from Lake Vermillion on the Bois Forte Band of Chippewa reservation. Dani is also the co-founder of Bois Forte Sovereignty & Sustainable Agriculture Community Group.
Dani, and a community of people interested in food sovereignty, are planning to bring fresh food to the Bois Forte community year around using aeroponic indoor growing systems. Her passion for reclaiming Native food sovereignty leads her work and is driven by a care for community health and undoing the effects of historical trauma and colonization. Chi-Miigwech to Dani for being on the show!
