"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."
— Elizabeth Laval & Candice Pendergrass, Sikh Youth Public History Project
ONLINE EVENT―Now, more than ever, it’s important to listen, learn and support those that have a reciprocal relationship with the earth and are stewards of the land and water. So this Fall, Real Food Real Stories will honor stories from three Indigenous changemakers who are revitalizing their ancestral traditions, modeling the work of reconnecting with culturally rooted, ecologically responsible food practices. On Thursday, October 15, gather online with Chef Crystal Wahpepah of Wapepah’s Kitchen, in Oakland. A Kickapoo tribal member, Chef Crystal proudly serves authentic Native cuisine, continues to work on the Indigenous Food Movement and food sovereignty to revive Native foods and to show people how beautiful these foods are.
