AbstractOn the Ground • Native women are the fastest growing demographic among Native farmers and ranchers and have the ability, creativity, and cultural wealth to transform and restore the relationship to the land. • However, these women must be empowered in a western agricultural world that is male dominated. • Tribal self-sustainability will require changes in policies for land tenure and inclusion of women. • Native women will need to keep abreast of local and national land issues that affect our resources and that increase their knowledge and skills. • Education will give Native women and our youth the freedom to choose what is best for the future.
