ÍY SȻÁĆEL HÁLE! Good day everyone! This episode is all about local indigenous food sovereignty. Peter Underwood and I have collaborated on this episode. We interviewed elders and community activists from the local communities of W̱SÁNEĆ and Lekwungen. We learn about plants, medicines, clam harvesting, camas harvesting, plant restoration and more!
Where do immigrants, refugees, settlers of colour fit on the continuum of colonization? How can we take guidance from Indigenous communities to be allies of Indigenous sovereignty and resurgence? These questions and others are explored in this episode.
Naming and using language is a sociopolitical act embedded in power. This episode is about how language can be a part of decolonizing practices and Indigenous resurgence. Featuring John Elliott, Jacqueline Jim, Eli Hirtle, and Troy Sebastian. This episode was brought to you by Open Space https://openspace.ca/
