Food Resource Guides

Through our statewide partnerships, the Wiba Anung team, curated a series of 13 Indigenous food resource guides for the 12 Federally recognized tribes in Michigan, and the Detroit area. Wiba Anung has a strong commitment to Indigenous food sovereignty to enhance the health and wellness of Tribal communities by promoting local Indigenous food producers, and vendors. The following set of food resource guides share information on food access through community pantries, meal programs, food producers, and independent vendors. We are grateful to the many individuals and partners who helped us assemble this information! We acknowledge that these guides to do not offer a comprehensive list of every food resource available and look forward to the growth of these guides over time. If you would like to be included in future iterations of the guide and in our online guides, please visit to share your information.

We aim to uplift and empower Indigenous producers and folks who are interested in improving access to Indigenous foods. There is a growing audience of people looking to purchase Indigenous foods, and we hope to inspire more people to join this food movement.

Individual tribes may have Tribal Food Sovereignty programs often linked to their Natural Resource Department and Community Health. Please visit your tribal office for more information on how to get involved.
