The Indigenous cafe using native cuisine to help its chefs fight addiction

“We’re trying to find ways to combat diet-related diseases among the people. A lot of us are related to people who have diabetes, hypertension. We want to reach out to more of the people and say, ‘Come buy your food here. It’s right here, locally grown, and this is way better than what we have in the stores.’”

I grew up in Northern public housing. The system does not work for Indigenous people

Indigenous peoples should have more authority to make decisions when it comes to housing in their communities, by combining culturally appropriate wraparound services and homeownership in the form of “Land Back”: meeting Canada’s promises of Truth and Reconciliation, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), and the national Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls report which mentions the need for housing for safety and security nearly 400 times.

Indigenous people from Canada, U.S., meet in Saskatoon to sign treaty aiming to restore bison

The first signatories to the treaty — members of different nations in North America — put their names on the document in 2014 at the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana, with the goal of allowing the free flow of the animals across the international border and restoring the spiritual and cultural connections between bison and Indigenous peoples.
