The Northern Michigan University Center for Native American Studies is now in the midst of the analysis and reporting phase of the Decolonizing Diet Project. The DDP staff are busy sorting through the data and preparing presentations and reports. We will be hosting some DDP sponsored events periodically as we continue working on the data. Although the implementation phase has come and gone, we know that the research subjects and friends and family of the DDP are still interacting on Facebook and will continue to incorporate what we have learned from our experience into our daily lives.

We would like to say chi-miigwech (many thanks) to those who have supported our project thus far including Northern Michigan University, the US Forest Service, the Cedar Tree Institute, the Kewenaw Bay Indian Community, and several businesses (please see the list of supporters at the DDP Group Site). If you or your organization would like to donate to this project (whether in the form of food, equipment, or cash), or if you have any questions about the DDP, please contact Dr. Martin Reinhardt, principal investigator, at (906)-227-1397, or email:

We wish everyone the very best as we continue on this exciting adventure.
