About this Session

Linda Black Elk will speak about the power that traditional foods have to keep us healthy and to heal us on physical, mental-emotional, and even spiritual levels. The body recognizes foods on a cellular level and eating from our landscapes promotes connection to the land and people in addition to providing nutrients.  Eating wild foods helps us decolonize our diets and support food sovereignty for everyone.
