Video Title:
Living Earth 2019: Roxanne Swentzell
Description:
The theme of this year’s festival, “Farm to Table: Sustaining Our Future Through Indigenous Knowledge,” highlights multiple perspectives on Indigenous contributions to sustainable farming by exploring trends, innovations and sustainability in Native communities. In this segment, Roxanne Swentzell (Santa Clara Pueblo) of the Flowering Tree Permaculture Institute, speaks on "Reclaiming Native American Foodways." She talks about the institute's research into sustainable living in the high desert environment of New Mexico and a project that challenged community members to eat only traditional indigenous foods for 90 days as a way of alleviating and reversing heart disease and diabetes that plague Native peoples in the United States. This program was webcast and recorded in the Rasmuson Theater of the National Museum of the American Indian on April 27, 2019.
