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.
If you’re interested in hearing more about sparking change in indigenous communities catch Acimowin streaming online, or if you’re in Edmonton tune into our mother station – CJSR 88.5 – on Fridays from 9am – 11am!
