Great points. We need to see indigenous economies as critical to the Arizona economy. In Tempe we co-produced this Indigenous Foodways Yearbook to highlight leaders in the Arizona food economy. Indigenous communities and indigenous concepts of resilience need to be centered in our climate action work and investments. https://www.tempe.gov/home/showdocument?id=85616
