Join panelists Lori Snyder, Woodrow Morrison, and T’uy’t’tanat- Cease Wyss at the Surviving Vancouver event. They will engage in an exploratory and educational discussion about Indigenous Food systems, abilities to subsist, survive and live with traditional food sources and healing properties of the natural world.
The philosophy of plants for food, medicine and cultural resources are found in the very cities we live in.
Despite popular belief, people need not travel outside of urban centers to discover a robust world of eco-diverse plants and animals that contribute to the health and vitality of our well being. Traditional technology and knowledge of harvesting belongs to Indigenous people’s beliefs and ways of knowing and is rooted in their relationship to the land.
Particularly in this period of climate change and great uncertainty about the earth’s future, many people believe it’s Indigenous values and practices that will help the climate emergency, one of which the City of Vancouver has recently acknowledged.
This exciting panel will speak to their individual practices, identifying food sources, medicine properties and cultural resources from local flora and fauna.
Nature enthusiasts, survivalists, naturopathic therapists and users, in addition to food practitioners, will all benefit from this dynamic panel discussion.
Surviving Vancouver will be moderated by Jolene Andrew.
