Indigenous peoples have always held a relationship with the land and non-human species that has enabled long and healthy lives. Indigenous people managed their food systems in different ways to contemporary Western industrial agricultural practices. Colonisation and Western practices have interfered with and disrupted the pre-existing and sustainable food systems of indigenous Peoples. These changes have interfered with traditional cultural practices and contributed to what we now understand as climate change.

This webinar offers some insights into how Indigenous Food Systems can contribute to different understandings about food and where it comes from in sustainable ways.
