This video features a reading of the Seed Sovereignty Declaration that was drafted by members of the New Mexico Acequia Association and the Traditional Native American Farmers' Association. This Alliance was later joined by the organizations Tewa Women United and Honor Our Pueblo Existence. The Declaration was presented and signed by 110 participants at the 1st Annual Tierra, Agua, y Cultura conference held in Alcalde, New Mexico on March 10 & 11, 2006.
This video features a recording of the Declaration read by students of Peñasco Middle School and Roots and Wings Charter School in 2010. The video and imagery depicts northern New Mexican cultural traditions of Indo-Hispano and Native American Pueblo food and agriculture. The images and video were mostly obtained over the years with the support of projects involving Miguel Santistevan that were funded by the McCune and Christensen Foundations and the Kindle Project.
