The Working Group on Indigenous Food Sovereignty has consistently held the space since 2006 for the generation of a body of knowledge within food systems discourse, that shines a light on the myriad ways that Indigenous hunting, fishing and gathering societies are persisting into the 21st century. While they are among some of the most sustainable adaptation strategies of humanity, we have been made invisible in agri-food systems research and “development” that has enabled the colonial expansion around the world.
This podcast conversation between Dawn Morrison, Working Group on Indigenous Food Sovereignty and Tammy Lea Meyer identifies some key points of entry into a journey of better understanding ways to decolonize research and relationships between Indigenous peoples and sustainable agri-food system advocates in support of more deep and meaningful truth and reconciliation in the land and food system.
