Created by friends at Bow & Arrow Brewing Company (the first Native American woman-owned brewery), located in Albuquerque, NM, the Native Land Beer Campaign is designed to further visibility of Native people and to generate resources to support Native organizations whose work strengthens Native communities.
Flying Bison Brewing Company joins 44 other brewers from 23 states across the country who have signed onto this campaign. As a participating brewery, Flying Bison will:
- Acknowledge ancestral lands they are located on with a label to recognize the Indigenous peoples of the area
- Commit to donating beer sales proceeds to The Center for Indigenous Cancer Research at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center
Along with Bow & Arrow Brewing, Flying Bison acknowledges that their brewery is located on traditional Haudenosaunee land. The Haudenosaunee Confederacy, also known as the Six Nations, translates to “People of the Longhouse.” The Confederacy is renowned for organizing a democratic system with a league of sovereign Native Nations, including Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca, and . Tuscarora.
The materials used to brew this IPA beer have been donated by local partners at New York Craft Malt and East Prairie Hop Company. Together, we believe in engaging and recognizing contributions made by Indigenous peoples in Western New York, the Haudenosaunee.
Join Flying Bison on February 25 as they release this limited-edition IPA brewed by Flying Bison and local Native community members. 100% of sales proceeds will support ongoing efforts at The Center for Indigenous Cancer Research at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.
