Food connected to one’s culture does more than nourish the body, it also provides emotional and spiritual support. For Indigenous chefs, reviving traditional harvest and preparation techniques is a mission to both create healthier bodies and healthier, more vibrant connections to family and community. Chefs discuss new ways to use culinary traditions for more sustainable growing and harvesting for the kitchen with North American Traditional Indigenous Food Systems (NĀTIFS)’s Sean Sherman and Rob Kinneen.
