Indigenous Nutrition31 Jul, 2009 | Posted by: june
n recent decades Indigenous Peoples globally have experienced rapid and dramatic shifts in lifestyle that are unprecedented in history. Moving away from their own self-sustaining, local food systems into industrially derived food supplies, these changes have adverse effects on dietary quality and health.
The Centre for Indigenous Peoples' Nutrition and Environment (CINE) based in McGill University, Canada, responded to requests from indigenous leaders from around the world to help stop loss of traditional food system knowledge with research and community-driven activities that bridge the generations.
This series of videos presents highlights from 12 indigenous community areas in 9 countries, and is intended to con tribute to the evidence base used to make global policies to protect Indigenous Peoples' food resources and promote good health.
