Recovering Space for Ancestral Foodways
Shiloh Maples, American Indian Health & Family Services
Reflecting on her diverse community engagement work in promoting traditional Native foods for a healthy diet, facilitating nutrition and traditional cooking classes, and managing community garden activities, Shiloh Maples will discuss the importance of revitalizing traditional foodways and embracing traditional foods in modern life.
