Watch: What does First Nations food sovereignty look like in the face of climate change?

Join us this Wednesday for a lively discussion about bringing food sovereignty back to the table

How can First Nations rebuild resilient food systems? What will it take to put food on the table amid a worsening climate crisis? What’s working? What’s getting in the way?

The Narwhal dove into these questions and more at a very special live event on Wednesday. Watch it below.

The conversation features:

  • ’Cúagilákv (Jess H̓áust̓i), lands-based educator, writer and executive director of the Qqs Projects Society
  • Tyrone McNeil, Stó:lō Tribal Council president and Tribal Chief and chair of the Emergency Planning Secretariat

“Food is such an important manifestation of community and connectedness … I don’t feel good, I don’t feel grounded when I’m not connected, if I’m not in community, if I’m not thinking about other people,” H̓áust̓i told our B.C. reporter Steph Kwetásel’wet Wood.

The event was moderated by Steph, who spent months working on a series of stories about food sovereignty featuring communities building up capacity to feed the future.
