This is 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 in a place 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 will teach and inspire.
