This course will explore the many aspects of food sovereignty, as it relates to Tribal sovereignty, and how our peoples, as well as our global Indigenous relations, are working to revitalize traditional and healthy cultural food systems and address the impacts of colonization on our health and well-being. We will discuss: the impact of colonization on our communities’ ability to access traditional foods as well as how it has contributed to the many health disparities we experience; how to use a Food Sovereignty Assessment tool to identify the food system assets in our own communities; and how we can use traditional knowledge, education, activism and policy to secure our food systems and support a healthier future for generations.

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in: Native American and Indigenous studies, food systems, and the Native Pathways Program.
