Those who missed the Native American Nutrition convention, hosted May 23-25 by the University of Minnesota in Prior Lake, Minnesota, can now watch key audio system’ recorded talks on-line.
The theme for the fifth annual convention was: ‘Decolonizing and Indigenizing our Diets for Health.’

Panelists included Michael Yellow Bird (Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara), the dean and the professor of the Faculty of Social Work on the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, spoke on intermittent fasting; Beverly Stabber Warne, (Oglala Lakota), professor at South Dakota State University College of Nursing, who talked concerning the elder perspective on meals for therapeutic; and keynote speaker Andrea Carmen (Yaqui), the Executive Director of the International Indian Treaty Council, who lectured on constructing resiliency of Indigenous meals programs in response to COVID-19 and the local weather disaster.
Videos of every featured speaker, plus demonstrations, together with a presentation and cooking demonstration by Oglala Lakota chef and up to date James Beard 2022 award for Best New Restaurant, Sean Sherman, can be found here.
