Show Notes

Today we explore the difference between food sovereignty and food security, and why these concepts are so important for Indigenous peoples. We also talk about commodities and rations, food deserts and reservations, re-indigenizing your food pallet, and a whole lot more. We start off by diving into our own experiences with food sovereignty and how we both got involved in this movement in different ways. Annie shares her story about her experiences in New York with strong Indigenous women, and Turtle kinda just rambles along and does his best to keep up. He had a mild cough when recording this episode, so his voice is a little raspy and he’s not all there at times. But this is a fun episode on an important topic that’s at the forefront of the decolonizing movement around the world. ~ Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - Our experiences with food sovereignty - The many layers of food sovereignty - Commodities, community health, and food deserts - Farmers markets and getting to know your food - Connecting with place and de-colonizing your palette - Decolonizing/Reindigenizing… going back to our ways - Food Sovereignty and Security Definitions - Policy Reform and Scientific Revolution - The power of sustainability - The power of words ~ Links and Resources: [La Via Campesina](https://viacampesina.org/en/) [Declaration of Nyéléni](http://usfoodsovereigntyalliance.org/what-is-food-sovereignty/) [What is Food Sovereignty?](https://foodsecurecanada.org/who-we-are/what-food-sovereignty) Food Security Definitions ([USDA](https://www.ers.usda.gov/topics/food-nutrition-assistance/food-security-in-the-us/definitions-of-food-security/)) ([Canada](https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/food-nutrition/food-nutrition-surveillance/health-nutrition-surveys/canadian-community-health-survey-cchs/household-food-insecurity-canada-overview/determining-food-security-status-food-nutrition-surveillance-health-canada.html)) [The Politics of Food](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/248054867_Schanbacer_William_D_The_Politics_of_Food_The_Global_Conflict_Between_Food_Security_and_Food_Sovereignty) ['Rescaling' alternative food systems: from food security to food sovereignty](https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10460-015-9623-x) [Beyond Food Security: Understanding Access to Cultural Food for Urban Indigenous People in Winnipeg as Indigenous Food Sovereignty](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/291831351_Beyond_Food_Security_Understanding_Access_to_Cultural_Food_for_Urban_Indigenous_People_in_Winnipeg_as_Indigenous_Food_Sovereignty) [Transforming Food Systems through Food Sovereignty: an Australia Urban Context](https://openresearch-repository.anu.edu.au/bitstream/1885/12953/2/Davila%2C%20F.%20and%20Dyball%20R.%20Transforming%20Food%20Systems%202015.pdf) [Food security, food systems and food sovereignty in the 21st century: A new paradigm required to meet Sustainable Development Goals ](https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1111/1747-0080.12264) [FOOD SECURITY AND FOOD SOVEREIGNTY – THE CASE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA](http://dtpr.lib.athabascau.ca/action/download.php?filename=mais/700/barbleslieProject.pdf) ~ [Like this show?

#2 - Being Indigenous in the Modern World

On this episode, we begin exploring this idea of being Indigenous in the modern world and how our experience in graduate school taught us a lot about this concept. It’s a big topic, so we want to be clear that we’re not the experts with all the answers, but we can definitely ask the question: How can you be Indigenous in the modern world? This will be a recurring theme and since it’s such a big question, we’ll be focusing on different aspects of this topic every three episodes or about once a month. If you have any questions or you have something to add, feel free to leave a comment or review and we’ll be sure to include it in one of the episodes. ~ Some of the main ideas we talk about: - Our experience with graduate school and being Indigenous in the modern world - Some of the tools we learned: traditional ecological knowledge; worldview awareness and integration; worldview sovereignty; biophilia and the power of word use; and respect, responsibility, and reciprocity - Our research projects ~ Links and Resources: Biophilia Article – Gullone, Eleanora. 2000.
