The story of Aboriginal peoples struggling to access healthy food in northern Manitoba. Despite the grinding poverty
and many other barriers to accessing healthy food where 75% of households
are food insecure, people in northern communities are growing hope. These
communities are planting gardens, starting greenhouses and teaching
traditional Aboriginal methods of harvesting, gardening, berry picking and
fishing to children and families. In spite of restrictive policies and a
lack of meaningful government support, community members are reintroducing
traditional food practices. This video features First Nation and Metis
people from Northern Manitoba as well as academics and past Assembly of
Manitoba Chief, Ovide Mercredi. This participatory video by graduate
student Vanessa Lozecznik, filmmaker Ryan Klatt and Dr. Thompson with community
input will teach and inspire.
