Kanyʌhtakelu Becky Webster
In the spring of 2017, Oneida Nation citizens Steve and Becky Webster purchased 10 acres of land on the Oneida Reservation. The following year, with the help of friends and family, they built a home. They currently grow traditional, heirloom foods with an emphasis on Haudenosaunee varieties of corn, beans, and squash. Their long term goal for this property is to serve as a place to host events where the community comes to learn about planting, growing, harvesting, seed keeping, food preparation, food storage, as well as making traditional tools and crafts. The philosophy is that every time an indigenous person plants a seed, that is an act of resistance and an assertion of sovereignty. With these goals in mind, an Oneida faithkeeper named their property Ukwakhwa: Tsinu Niyukwayay^thoslu (Our foods: Where we plant things).

My channel is about the things I love to do. I love learning about things that help me stay alive in this dangerous world. the world wants complete control over everything we do and I’m not gonna stand by and let that happen. I think we all should pay a little bit more attention to more things like Gardening, self preservation, self defense, homesteading, camping, fishing, and hunting. in the heart of a big busy city, it aint always easy to make ends meet, so its about time we all learn another way to survive, the old way, the best way, the only way. I love living.
