Ekvn-Yefolecv is an Indigenous ecovillage that seeks to build an agricultural complex to conserve/restore bison and sturgeon to decolonize the Maskoke diet with traditional, bioregional animal proteins and vegetables. Additionally, the complex also will include a language immersion program where students can participate in agricultural/ceremonial practices involving bison, sturgeon and vegetable crops.They also built an aquaponics facility wherein the host fish is a threatened species that was extirpated from Alabama streams to be reintroduced back into the watershed. The goal of their project is a decolonization paradigm in which they are relearning how to eat healthy as well as how to appreciate food that is grown and harvested in accordance with their ceremonial cycles.
