Event Details

Session One: “Earth to Table Legacies” 

Settler organic farmer Dianne Kretschmar loves to get her hands in the soil while Mohawk community food leader Chandra Maracle focuses on the kitchen table and what’s happened to Indigenous food practices through colonization. These two women frame the exchange of a food activists (youth and elders, settler and Indigenous, Mexican and Canadian) sharing issues from their struggles for food sovereignty.

Since 2015, the Earth to Tables Project, an intergenerational and intercultural exchange of food activists, has produced short videos and photo essays exploring food sovereignty practices in Indigenous and settler communities in Ontario, Quebec, and Mexico. This short film series will feature three of these videos, followed by discussion of the critical issues they raise and how they relate to the experiences of participants.
