OCIC Indigenous Food Security Blanket Exercise Registration Now Open

Event Details

Walking with all our Relatives: Food systems and Indigenous Protocols of Engagement
Join OCIC, Tyra Cox and Alison Cox for an Indigenous Food Security Blanket Exercise – a powerful inter-active simulation, which includes a walk-through-time approach where learners become the Indigenous people and role play in an intense story of truth. Walk away with a deeper understanding of the history between colonial land settlers and the impact settlement had on Indigenous traditional food systems, post-colonial food security, Indigenous health, poverty and land disparity issues.

“Perhaps it was greed and desperation that desecrated our sacred lands and our Mother’s natural resources, but in the end it left us depleted, hungry, and unable to rejuvenate, which at once was deeply spiritual and natural.”  Alison Cox, Indigenous Knowledge Keeper

Admission is free, but registration is required

Note: This event will be held in advance of OCIC’s Transformations: Stories of Partnership, Reselience and Positive Change Photojournalism Exhibition Launch. For details on the Exhibition and to register for the Launch, click here.
