The Food Literacy International Partnership (FLIP)
Invites you to their sixth webinar featuring three food literacy scholars
Thinking About Indigenous Foodways | Wednesday December 13th, 2023 | 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. *PDT
Food literacy is a term that is increasingly being used by a number of varied professionals who have an interest in food. These professionals include educators, home economists, dietitians, and public health workers. Not surprisingly each profession brings their own nuanced interpretation.
The Food Literacy International Partnership (FLIP) is offering a series of webinars where food literacy scholars and practitioners will discuss ideas of what food literacy is and what it looks like in practice. These discussion will be informed by research and everyday experiences.
Please join us for this exciting event by registering your interest in attending. We hope this webinar will stimulate thinking and debate on the topic.
Indigenous peoples have always held a relationship with the land and non-human species that has enabled long and healthy lives. Indigenous people managed their food systems in different ways to contemporary Western industrial agricultural practices. Colonisation and Western practices have interfered with and disrupted the pre-existing and sustainable food systems of indigenous Peoples. These changes have interfered with traditional cultural practices and contributed to what we now understand as climate change.
This webinar offers some insights into how Indigenous Food Systems can contribute to different understandings about food and where it comes from in sustainable ways.
