Field recording(s) of a performance in collaboration with my kindergarten students at David Skeets Elementary. The class is an indigenous culinary education, reintroducing traditional foods to our youth, and engaging the community in Indigenous Food Sovereignty. The food production and preparation is a way of passing cultural knowledge and an active resistance to colonizing forces. Empowering our traditional knowledge systems and utilizing the adaption of tools to connect our relationship with land and environment is the intent of the class, Food is Medicine.
