Unlike any other resource on the market, this textbook explores a diverse array of Indigenous food systems, including those of Anishinaabeg, Asatiwisipe, Cree, Métis, Migmag, and Tsartlip. Seeking solutions to food insecurity and well-being for current and future generations, Indigenous and non-Indigenous food practitioners and scholars document the voices and experiences of community members encountered in their research to promote an understanding of the barriers and challenges to Indigenous food systems and presenting ways to reclaim cultural identity and food sovereignty.



  • Highlights community-based case studies, which demonstrate how Indigenous communities are leading the way to design and implement community-based initiatives in collaborative spirit
  • Features pedagogical features including key terms, learning objectives, glossaries, critical thinking questions, and suggested reading lists in each chapter
