Delora D. Wilson
Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians
Delora has worked for several years to develop community garden spaces within the GTB community. When the new GTB Agriculture & Food Sovereignty Dept was formed in the spring of 2019, the GTB Human Resources Department allowed Delora to be hired as a trainee as part of the Agriculture & Food Sovereignty Department. Since being hired she has been involved with the annual crop management, has learned how to safely and confidently operate farm equipment, and she has witnessed how organically grown produce items can be distributed to the tribal community.
