Partnerships and Collaborations

Yaupon has been used as an important food, medicine, and ceremonial item by Indigenous people for thousands of years. We want to tell that story in a way that pays respect to native people, and we believe firmly in the native food rematriation movement. Five percent of our online sales are donated directly to North American Traditional Indigenous Food Systems (NĀTIFS), founded by James Beard award winner Chef Sean Sherman - The Sioux Chef.
