While growing in northern Québec, I always wondered why we were not exposed to a more indigenous food. Where is the food of the people, the indigenous people? Its not in the realm of the media and it’s not something that we hear about. I think it should be upfront and center. How can the love of the land doesn’t include indigenous food? Hunting and foraging for food is primordial and should be the way to sustain ourself. Now if only we could learn that in school!? Im happy then more people are making pushing to take back what is theirs. Turkey anyone?
“My grandmothers taught me from a young age that I shouldn’t feel sorry for killing animals, since they suffer and are lonely if they are not hunted. We respect animals and pray to the animal spirits to show our thanks.”
“Embracing this cuisine is a form of taking back what is ours.” Indigenous cooks reshape Canada’s culinary landscape. @nytfood
