Drawing on rich traditions to nourish our children
Canada’s Food Guide is undergoing revisions and this is an opportunity to consult with Indigenous leaders to ensure it is culturally relevant and reflective of our First Nations, Inuit, and Métis teachings.
Willie Littlechild: 'In the old days, our chiefs would look ahead to see what was coming so they could warn our communities, find a solution, and protect them. Now is the time for all of our Indigenous leaders to do the same. Treating illness is important but we need to shift more of our focus on wellness and prevention by advocating for change at all levels to ensure all our children enjoy long, healthy lives.'
