What is Food Sovereignty?

What is Food Sovereignty Alaska Indegenous Food Sovereigntry Movemnts

Food sovereignty is “the right of Peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems.” – La Via Campesina, 1996

Food is at the heart of Alaskan Native Cultures. From hunting and fishing, to trapping and gathering, preparation and participation has kept communities fed and grounded in relationship to one another, plant and animal kin, and the spiritual realm. Now, under the pressures of climate change, global pandemic, and increasing human populations, Alaskan Native Peoples and their food systems are challenged to shift and adapt.
