Food Security and Sovereignty

The Tŝilhqot’in people lived on the land and thrived for centuries by moving with the seasons, hunting and gathering food for sustenance. Strategies are currently being developed to address access, availability, and stability in food sources through out the waterways, fields, and forests. The transmission of food related knowledge was severely impacted over the past century. Actions must be taken to re-activate traditional practices and the wisdom and values that ancestors held.
