About The Speakers:
Angel Jimerson (Seneca/Heron Clan)
Growing up at Ganondagan, Angel has been involved with the Iroquois White Corn Project since it was brought to Ganondagan in 2012. He began working in the Iroquois White Corn Project Youth Program, later leading the youth group. Since then, Angel has filled several roles within the Project including cultural outreaches, workshops, and demonstrations sharing his knowledge within the academic setting, at conferences, events, and, as of late, virtually.
Currently, Angel fills the role of Iroquois White Corn Project, Production Manager. His passion for minimalism, sustainability, and food sovereignty are a direct reflection of his Haudenosaunee values, culture and traditions.
Lauren Jimerson (Seneca/Heron Clan), former project manager of the Iroquois White Corn Project, grew up on the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation learning about the traditions of stewarding white corn by way of her grandfather. She enjoys cooking with ancestral foods to create dishes for the modern palette.
