Additional Details:

This class focuses on Indigenous peoples in Canada and the U.S., exploring how they are utilizing the concept of Food Sovereignty in creating dialogue and action around the revitalization of Indigenous food practices and ecological knowledges. “Indigenizing” food sovereignty moves it beyond a rights based discourse by emphasizing the cultural responsibilities and relationships Indigenous peoples have with their environment and the efforts being made by Indigenous communities to restore these relationships through the revitalization of Indigenous foodways and ecological knowledge systems as they assert control over their own foods and practices.
