My research explores the processes and practices of Indigenous food systems. I am particularly interested in the factors that affect Indigenous peoples’ food sovereignty. Current research includes how food as a discipline can operationalize the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action and the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Inquiry Report’s 231 Calls to Justice; how Indigenous knowledges can be used as food literacy; and the reclamation of Indigenous seed knowledges.
