Our new quarterly virtual learning series will feature different speaker(s) on topics related to health and Indigenous communities. The goal of the series is to inform participants from various sectors about Indigenous communities and their relationships with health and wellness, as well as with chronic disease like diabetes. Meetings through this series will foster and encourage relationships between speakers, foundation and non-profit leaders, as well as researchers and policy makers who are looking at working with and better supporting Indigenous communities.
Join us for Episode 1: Demian Lawrenchuk – Live on April 6th!
Demian Lawrenchuk, Fox Lake Cree Nation & Executive Director, Food Matters Manitoba, will speak about the work of Food Matters Manitoba; the connections and relationships between the land, food, animals, and people; Swampy Cree teachings and harvesting life; and how conservation, food security, food sovereignty, and health intersect.
