Many First Nations communities have endured more than a century of struggle in their quest for safe and reliable nutrition. Since the settling of the reserves in Western Canada, food has been a key variable in shaping indigenous health. In this presentation, James Daschuk surveys the role of food in the evolution of health inequity in the western provinces today.

This event is bilingual.

In partnership with the Canadian Political Science Association (CPSA). With funding support from the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences.
