The Anishinaabe Agriculture Institute is working to restore food ways, rematriate seeds, and make a new economy; one based on local food, energy, and fiber. They have two branches: Winona’s Hemp for the textiles of the future and Anishinaabe Agriculture, their tax-exempt sister organization focused on regenerative and post petroleum or reduced petroleum agriculture and restoration of traditional varieties of food.
