2019 Native American Heritage Month Lecture: Food Sovereignty Now

Monday, November 18

Theme(s):
Environmental Health, Infectious Disease Prevention, Nutrition Promotion and Obesity and Diabetes Prevention

Food sovereignty empowers Native Americans to determine their own policies related to food and agriculture and empowers them to revitalize Indigenous knowledge and practices around foods. Today's powerful food sovereignty movement is aimed at decolonizing food systems while combatting multiple public health challenges, from food insecurity to heart disease and type 2 diabetes. By exercising food sovereignty, tribal nations are also rebuilding resilient agriculture.
 
The Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health is honored to host activist Denisa Livingston, MPH (Diné Nation) of the Diné Community Advocacy Alliance, as the keynote speaker for this year's Native American Heritage Month event.
