The acronym stands for Sovereign Indigenous Growers on Native Land and Seas. It is meant to represent how communications were made by using smoke signals, one of the earliest types of air communication. Today we have internet which makes communicating much easier if you know where to look.
Our logo is a turtle with a stalk of hemp growing out of it like an antenna. Native people use the term turtle island, which is our way of saying the land on which we originate from. When you see this logo you will know this is where you can find real time information about what Native people are currently doing within the agriculture and aquaculture industries.
We chose to showcase these industries because theses are sustainable business ideas and are a huge part of who we are. We are Earth and Water people and every Native Nation has their own traditions and methods that haver to be shared with the world. This is what this network is all about.
This network is a shared platform of blogs, articles, press releases and videos. We want your story! Take advantage of technology and inform your Native brothers and sisters about what challenges you are facing, what successful businesses look like, as well as your experiences and inspiration. Support is out there and there is someone who needs your support. Today information is one of the highest demanded products and it begins here. Start sending your smoke SIGNLS and be a part of creating stronger Intertribal connections.
