I recently moved to Northeast Oklahoma and have been in discussion with folks in Cherokee/ Tahlequah area about doing some permaculture workshops, maybe even some as continuing education through NSU, which has a high population of Native Americans. I'm white and would especially like to bring more indigenous permaculturists to the front of the classroom and collaborate with them from the very start of this idea phase. But who?
This area is also very near Missouri and Arkansas, so want to cast my inquiry net as wide as possible to make sure the teachers are not all white.
I've contacted the Indigenous Permaculture group based out of San Francisco, but their last posts are from years ago and the email bounced back
