Food Sovereignty Video Series

The Alaska Indigenous Food Sovereignty Movement

Indigenous food ways include a variety of harvest, preparation, and consumption methods. The sovereignty of these food ways comes from Indigenous peoples’ ability to independently manage healthy and culturally appropriate food resources on the land which these resources reside. This video series explores the journey of the Indigenous people of Interior Alaska to gain food sovereignty.
