Decolonize Your Diet: Healthy Food Pathways in the City
The revitalization of traditional Native foods is part of a “re-indigenization” renaissance happening from coast to coast. Many people are unaware that a key strategy of the American genocide against Indigenous peoples was to destroy native food sources, create dependency, and replace healthy diets with nutrient deficient commodities. In this panel, Native leaders in the Bay Area will discuss how they have been shaping this movement to revitalize Indigenous foods. In addition to improving health, Indigenous foods local to place foster community wellness and intergenerational healing by bringing people together, providing fun activities for youth, and decolonizing urban spaces. Join us to learn what you can do to be a part of this movement and how to decolonize your own diet. With: Crystal Wahpepah, Wahpepah’s Kitchen; Sara Moncada, The Cultural Conservancy. Moderated by Cara Romero.
