PINE POINT -- For about 20 years now, the White Earth Land Recovery Project has been working on cultural revitalization, food and energy sovereignty issues on the White Earth reservation.


The Mino-Miijim ("Good Food") Program was created several years ago, to address the diabetes epidemic on the White Earth Reservation and to restore health and balance to the community. The program provides traditional native and healthy food items to diabetic individuals and their families.
