Launch of Indigenous Food Systems Network Website

BC Environmental & Occupational Health Research Network – The IFSN Website Project is a web-based centre for increasing awareness of issues, concerns and strategies related to protecting, conserving and restoring the myriad of Indigenous food based cultures across Canada. The website provides an interpretive and interactive meeting place for: 1) networking and sharing information that promotes Indigenous food related action, research and policy reform, and 2) engaging individuals and groups in cross cultural dialogue and discussion relevant to Indigenous food sovereignty.

The strength of this project lies in the relationships built within these extended networks of which the partnership between Siska Traditions Society, the BC Food Systems Network -Working Group for Indigenous Food Sovereignty and the Indigenous Diet Project – BC Environmental and Occupational Health Research Network Seed Grant has resulted. With these extended networks of Indigenous peoples and allies working to promote and protect Indigenous foods systems across the country we believe a vast and diverse audience will use the IFSN Website.
