Northwest Coast Ethnobotany and Lessons for Food Systems Sustainability


Archived video of this presentation.

For countless generations Native Americans and First Peoples have stewarded the rich and diverse ecosystems throughout this region which range from as deep as a Halibut can dive to as high as a Mountain Goat can climb. Join ethnobotanist T. Abe Lloyd as he explores the resiliency of Indigenous food systems by using an ecological lens to compare and contrast traditional and industrial food systems. He’ll close by reflecting on how social paradigms guide food systems.
