Topic: Indigenous Food Security and Sovereignty: Community Projects

Date: Tuesday, February 14, 2017, 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. CDT

Presenter: Tabitha Martens

Webinar Description:

The loss of food security and sovereignty for some Indigenous communities has contributed to an increase in diseases like Type 2 Diabetes. In reclaiming food sovereignty and security, Indigenous communities can work towards healing and hope. Tabitha Martens is a mixed ancestry Cree researcher who has been studying Indigenous food security and sovereignty. This webinar will share the outcomes of her research project examining 24 Indigenous food sovereignty initiatives across Canada.

The NADA & IDHC webinars are back in action!

Please join us for the next National Aboriginal Diabetes Association and Indigenous Diabetes Health Circle webinar on Tuesday, April 9, 2019, at 12:00PM central.

This webinar will feature T’uy’t’tanat Cease Wyss, known as “The Indigenous Plant Diva”. T’uy’t’tanat is from the Squamish First Nation and is a media artist, cultural facilitator, and ethno-botanist, traditionally trained in this field by Elders. Her work involves site-specific and culturally focused teaching with storytelling as her means to sharing knowledge. T’uy’t’tanat was named the 2018 Indigenous storyteller in residence at the Vancouver Public Library, and is known for her ‘plant walks’ in Stanley Park. Cease Wyss and Anne Riley are embarking on a City of Vancouver public art collaboration to remediate various sites around the city that are affected by toxins in different ways, using plants, mulch and myco-remediation techniques and Indigenous methods of sustainable agriculture.

T’uy’t’tanat grew up learning about the plant foods and medicines of the Pacific Northwest Coast. Living in the city of Vancouver, T’uy’t’tanat is used to practising her culture in an urban environment; growing, harvesting and teaching about the Indigenous plants of this rainforest ecosystem, and offers a beautiful vision of how to learn from the land and the plant teachers all around us. T’uy’t’tanat will share her knowledge of plants – both food and medicinal plants of the Pacific Northwest coast. T’uy’t’tanat started Harmony Garden with the guidance and feedback of her Elders. It is a community garden and food forest, with the aim of sustaining the Skwxwu7mesh people in the community. Located on the Xwemelch'stn Uximixw, also known as the Capilano Reserve, T’uy’t’tanat urges community members to participate in the land based learning that happens there. "I do it all for the children. They are our future." To register for the webinar, please visit the following link:
