for thousands of years, Indigenous peoples have been leading experts in holistic nutrition. living in balance and good relationship with the land, Indigenous communities have held incredible knowledge of optimal food sources and preparation local to their traditional territories. traditional Indigenous foods are incredibly nutrient dense, offering healthy fats and micronutrients. these foods also have amazing healing properties.
this incredible Indigenous food knowledge has been disrupted by many mechanisms of colonization, with traditional lifeways intentionally interrupted, food sources destroyed or disrupted, and policies and legislation that enforced Indigenous people's dependence on the colonial system for sustenance. this has given way to many diet-related health issues in our communities.
today, the rise of the industrial model of agriculture has disconnected all people, including Indigenous, on turtle island (North America) from the foods we have on our plates.
with capitalism as the driving force, food manufacturers have exploited this industry and taken full advantage of us, the consumers. markets are filled with artificial foods that we are led to believe have health benefits because they add nutrients back into the products that have been lost in processing.
unprecedented levels of diseases are calling us to return to the natural, alive, good quality diets of our ancestors and urging us to eat off the land.
