Tribe to Table is not your standard CBD brand. Through partnerships with federally recognized Native American tribes and Mayan communities in Yucatán, we offer premium quality products that are like no other. Many native communities around North America experience some of the worst poverty and harshest conditions. In Yucatán where we work with a local Mayan group to create our shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion – a normal day’s wage is around $12 USD a day, or about 250 pesos. While the cost of living is also lower, many standard amenities like cell phones and electricity cost comparably to what we pay in Los Angeles. For just $10 though, we were able to buy dinner for dozens of people. We are not a charity – the sale of our products directly supports the artisans and farmers that we work with.
The story begins with wild salmon. Fishing is a way of life and a deep rooted part of the culture for many Pacific Northwest tribes, so upon winning back their own treaty rights many native fishermen did just that – they fished. As a seafood distributor as well as being Native himself, Tribe to Table’s founder was able to expand the native wild salmon trade and in doing so, became well acquainted with a wide variety of native grown foods and ingredients. Impressed and inspired by the level of environmental stewardship and amazing quality from seed to product as well as the hardships felt by the many indigenous groups, Tribe to Table and Tribe to Table Wellness were born. We strive to support indigenous farmers and producers.
