Such a terrific, hopeful and exciting article! I'm devoting my graduate capstone to studying Lakota foodways, including a bioregional and historical overview of past and present subsistence patterns. Food is and should be more than a fundamental right among native cultures and people. It should also serve as a way to revive and retain important cultural traditions and as a means to building resilient, healthy communities.
In other words: good, just food can save the world!!! (Thanks, Bryan, for the link!)
