Cook, Camera, Action: Celebrating Canada's Indigenous Culture while teaching the next generation of Canadians healthy food skills
Start date: 1 April, 2017
End date: 31 December, 2017
Cook Camera Action will bring Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth together to learn traditional and western food skills capturing their learning through film-making to share the Canadian food story with the community.
Nature of the Project Reach
Students at the Katarokwi Aboriginal School will learn from Elders, Knowledge Holders, Loving Spoonful and a filmmaker, traveling to film at Indigenous food sites and sharing their films and a feast with the broader community.
1) Celebrate Canada's 150th by promoting reconciliation around food through meals, field days and the Showcase Feast and film fest.
2) Engage Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth in traditional knowledge sharing
3) Empower diverse at-risk youth as leaders and storytellers through film-making
4) Build a more inclusive community
If Knowledge Holders about Indigenous foods and food skills or Indigenous filmmakers would like to participate, they are certainly welcome!
