Overview

Unlike any other resource on the market, this textbook addresses the disproportionate level of food insecurity in Indigenous rural, urban, and Northern communities across Canada. Offering diverse perspectives and experiences, Indigenous Food Systems features contributions from practitioners, scholars, and researchers from across the country, including Métis, Migmag, Asatiwisipe Anishinaabeg, Tsartlip, and Cree Nations. Considering historical and contemporary challenges, contributors address the social and geographical barriers to food security that Indigenous communities face. The text proposes that food traditions are linked with not only individual nutritional health but also the future vibrancy of Indigenous cultures and traditions. Authors advocate for traditional seasonal food gathering, preparation, and consumption practices, and offer recommendations for the improvement of urban access to quality food sources.
