This week we’re bringing you a radio documentary produced by Roisin Graham. It was produced as a part of a CSL project for the course AREC 173 at the University of Alberta. This short documentary explores the challenges to Indigenous food sovereignty. Roisin interviewed indigenous activist, Nigel Henri-Robinson, and treaty 8 consultant, Jessica Cardinal. They address their experience with traditional indigenous food systems and how they are impacted by Canadian food systems and policies.
