Knowledge from the Past

Latrice Tatsey will offer a keynote talk on the roots of regenerative farming at this year’s US National Biodynamic Conference, November 8-12 in Colorado, USA.

Latrice is part of a powerful movement within farming today: farmers who are reconnecting with their roots to fight climate change. Indigenous, Black, Latinx, and Asian American farmers in the USA are reviving their diverse ancestors’ methods of growing food and thus restoring native prairies and enriching soil health. While feeding their communities and revitalizing cultural ties to the land, they are stitching ecosystems back together and repairing the natural carbon cycle.

Latrice grew up on her family’s cattle ranch on Badger Creek, Blackfeet Nation in Montana, USA. She relies on the native American knowledge taught by her father, uncles, and grandmother about the traditional and historical uses of their land. Latrice now serves as Soils Scientist, Cultural Science Lead, and Intern Supervisor for the regenerative grazing initiative at Piikani Lodge Health Institute on the Blackfeet Nation. She also holds a master’s degree from Montana State University, where her research partnered with local beef cattle producers and the Blackfeet Nation bison herd to further the understanding of how cattle and bison influence soil health. She was recently featured in Liz Carlisles’s new book Healing Grounds: Climate, Justice, and the Deep Roots of Regenerative Farming.
