Youth in Action: Indigenous Food Sovereignty

November 19, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Hear from young Native activists and changemakers from across the Western Hemisphere who are working toward equity and social justice for Indigenous peoples. Native food systems and agricultural practices were disrupted upon European settlement and the displacement of Native peoples from their lands. For the last century, new foods introduced by U.S. federal policy were unhealthy and substantially different from traditional diets. The introduction of unhealthy food, combined with uneven quality of and access to medical care, continues to leave many American Indians fighting an uphill battle for their health. Today we see many young people returning to traditional food sources and sustainable ways of living through political action and sustainable practice.

This November, for Native American Heritage Month, participants can join conversation with Samuel Lopez (Tohono O’odham), Mariah Gladstone (Blackfeet, Cherokee), and Alecia Lennie (Inuvialuit) to learn how these young Native foodies are working to decolonize their diets and restore balance in their bodies and communities. This FREE webinar is targeted to middle and high school students and advance registration is required.
