Ryerson University, 7th floor Heaslip House, 297 Victoria Street
This Food For Talk presentation, which is covered by three Aboriginal women, will introduce issues of food security in northern/rural First Nations communities and in urban areas such as Toronto. It will raise both the similarities and differences within each of these types of communities, examine the historical roots and present day impacts of food insecurity and explore the attempts at lessening this problem for Aboriginal peoples.
The presentation will then turn to Aboriginal world views, research methodologies and cultural/ethical protocols which are currently serving as guidelines for many Aboriginal researchers/research projects. A specific research project that has begun with Aboriginal/Indigenous youth in a First Nations community in New Brunswick and a rural community in Brazil on food security and identities will be show cased.
