Our people shared and carried out many practices that kept our children and families strong and thriving. Wisdom and knowledge on preparing our foods, using our medicines was passed from one generation to the next. We know that we needed to heal ourselves and keep our bodies and minds nourished. We need to reclaim this knowledge and share it with our young people and understand why the food we are eating today from grocery stores is making us sick.
Community based actions such as community kitchens, cooking classes, recipe sharing, and the development of Nishnawbe Aski Nation specific nutrition education materials can all aid in transitioning supporting nutrition practices.
