This gathering, carried out via webinar, will bring together Indigenous practitioners and traditional knowledge holders, as well as food sovereignty, environmental health, Treaty and cultural rights advocates to discuss the significance of wild rice for the Indigenous Nations whose way of life has always been based on this traditional food source. It will also address the current threats to wild rice, including mining, genetic modification, climate change and habitat loss, as well as Indigenous Peoples’ work to protect, defend and restore this vital source of life.
We extend a special invitation to Indigenous Youth from Wild Rice Nations and to all those interested in returning to this way of life.
