Eating indigenously changes diets and lives of Native Americans | Al Jazeera America

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!)

‘The strong tie to your land influences your political system and your religious system and your social system,’ Romero said. ‘The idea was if we had kids reconnecting to traditional foods they would be reconnecting to all these other institutions that make our community.’
