Meet Our Tuesday Keynote Speaker

Lyla June Johnston presents the Tuesday lunch keynote on the topic of indigenous food systems, intercultural healing, and traditional land practices.

As previously announced, Will Harris of White Oak Pastures will present the Monday dinner keynote.

Lyla June blends undergraduate studies in human ecology at Stanford University, graduate work in Native American Pedagogy at the University of New Mexico, and the indigenous worldview she grew up with to inform her perspectives and solutions. She is currently pursuing a doctoral degree at the University of Alaska in Indigenous Studies with a focus on Indigenous Food Systems Revitalization.

She also will present with a group of panelists Monday in a session on power dynamics and injustice within our food system.
