Food as Healing & Prevention: Sharing Indigenous Success Stories Webinar

Indigenous people have long known that food is medicine and have respected and used it as such. However, removal, relocation and other factors have contributed to disrupted food ways and declining health for many American Indians and Alaska Natives. There are many resilient food champions working hard to revitalize the connection with food for the overall health of our current and future generations. In this webinar we're honored to have two of these food champions share their knowledge by way of telling their story. Diane Wilson (Dream of Wild Health) and David Manuel (Red Lake Food Initiative) share their successes and challenges for others to learn from.
