Implementing food safety and food security awareness and practices in contemporary indigenous communities has not always been easy or successful. However, understanding sovereignty and nation building and their relationship to food safety and food security, Joe Munroe’s presentation sheds some light on his work and the importance of connecting Indigenous self-governance to food safety and awareness.
This speech was part of the 2012 Indigenous Forum, co-produced with the Cultural Conservatory, at the Bioneers National Conference.
Since 1990, Bioneers has acted as a fertile hub of social and scientific innovators with practical and visionary solutions for the world’s most pressing environmental and social challenges.
