Indigenous Peoples Day Event with Jen Falck

Jen Falck

UW Oshkosh InterTribal Student CouncilIn celebration of Indigenous Peoples Day, Jen Falck joins the Oshkosh Food Co-op for a special presentation, describing efforts in which she is taking part to build a more just food system. This event is co-presented by the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Inter-Tribal Student Council.

Jen is a member of the Oneida Nation. She has been passionate about food her entire life. Jen has a B.S. in Natural Resource Management and an MPA. She worked for the Oneida Nation in environmental health and legislation for 19 years.

Currently, she works for the Menominee Department of Agriculture & Food Systems, where her primary responsibilities include creating food policies that promote a food system which reflects Menominee food ways and encourages people to take control of their personal food sovereignty. Jen is currently teaching for the University of Minnesota-Duluth in the Tribal Resource & Environmental Stewardship Graduate Program.

Jen and her family are also founding members of Ohelaku- a grassroots cooperative of 12 families that grow traditional Tuscarora White Corn on the Oneida Reservation. Jen and her husband have a freshman at Northland College, and are adjusting to their newly emptied nest. They operate Kahulahele Farmstead which focuses on restorative agriculture, micro food systems, direct farm sales, conscious animal husbandry, bartering, and cooperative self-reliance.
