This Food Justice Friday we are looking at the reintroduction of Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) into Western land management practices. Swipe to learn more about what TEK encompasses and the importance of using indigenous practices and knowledge to return to a more sustainable and productive ecosystem.

β€œMany Native people seeking to revitalize their food systems consider restoration of traditional foods and practices essential to regaining their health, traditional economy and culture. Yet challenges remain, due to limited funding and tribal capacity, gaps in knowledge caused by genocide, forced assimilation and associated historical trauma, limited access to ancestral tribal lands, and the inherent institutional power asymmetries shaping resource access, use, and management” (Jennifer Sowerwine, Professor at University of California, Berkeley in Indigenous Food Sovereignty).
