Land and Spirit: Indigenous responses to food insecurity
This session will explore how Indigenous food sovereignty is being used in diverse communities as a lens and approach to combat food insecurity with indigenous populations. Indigenous food sovereignty encompasses a mental, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual approach to food and land. We’ll take a tour of the country, from unique initiatives in the North to urban partnerships in Toronto to projects happening on reserve in New Brunswick. You’ll get a chance to see different program models at work and collectively explore considerations for working with Indigenous groups.
