Dream of Wild Health (DWH) is a Native-owned, Native-grown organic farm in Hugo whose mission is to promote health in the Native community by expanding knowledge of and access to healthy indigenous foods and medicines.  They are part of a groundswell movement to reclaim indigenous foods and lifeways and promote food sovereignty by working to increase food access and equity for the Native community.  DWH is growing healthy and traditional foods in response to requests from low-income community members and participants in their programs.  Their American Indian Youth Education & Leadership Program organizes low income, high-risk urban Native youth to reestablish a deep, reverent connection with the earth.
