Decolonizing Our Diets: Plant Based Wellness & ItalityNM


November 22, 2019 – Native Americans have long been cultivators of the surrounding landscape for sustenance. Recent movements across the country and in New Mexico seek to return to Indigenous food systems and best practices for not only individual health benefits, but the wellness of tribal communities and the Earth. As the holiday season approaches, food is on the mind of many people. NMiF takes a look at where our food comes from and what is nourishing our bodies. Correspondent Antonia Gonzales heads to Jemez Pueblo to meet with a Native American woman and business owner who is focused on a plant-based way of life that offers an alternative to processed, readily available foods.
