Afro-Indigenous Food Rights Project
Roots Rising is an inter-generational food and wellness collective that connect Black, Indigenous, and Afro-Indigenous people to the land and our cultural practices.
We will be running:
- Wellness and Mindfulness workshops
- Community dinners and events where we will share food and music
- Field trips to community gardens, and farms
- Going on forest walks
- Storytelling and knowledge sharing
Black food sovereignty is about the Human Right to Food for all People of the African Diaspora, including us of Afro-Indigenous/multi-genetic descent. Whatever cultures, places, former colonies, or histories we came from, we all face anti-black systemic racism here in Canada and need to build Unity to achieve Equity and healthy food justice.
We are in the One Dish with One Spoon Treaty territory (great lakes region) and seek to work in Solidarity with the first peoples of this land and allies- to peaceably share and care for the resources and ecosystem of the GTA for all our relations and future generations.
