No Comments on 2018 Your Health Matters Calendar AVAILABLE NOW!!

This year’s “Your Health Matters” Calendar is a product of partnership between the National Aboriginal Diabetes Association and the Aboriginal Nutrition Network of the Dietitians of Canada.
The National Aboriginal Diabetes Association, the Aboriginal Nutrition Network of the Dietitians of Canada, and 12 Indigenous Dietitians have come together to share their stories and recipes to help community members learn more about the fields of dietetics and nutrition, and about healthy eating generally. Each month features a Registered Dietitian who shares something about themselves along with a recipe related to traditional/original foods.

This calendar:

  • Showcases First Nations and Métis Dietitians and students as a means of bringing more attention to the fields of Indigenous nutrition and holistic living.
  • Can be used as a resource to encourage First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to pursue a career in nutrition or dietetics.
  • Shares recipes based on traditional/original teachings and encourages consumption of traditional/original foods.

As with previous NADA calendars, each day on the calendar has three spots to record blood sugar levels if you are a person living with diabetes and conducting regular tests. Self-testing your blood sugar (blood glucose) can be an important tool in managing your treatment plan and preventing long-term complications of diabetes.

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:
