Sgeno swagwegoh Indigenous Nutritional Knowledge Information Network of DC members and members of the Dietitians of Canada Community:
IN-KIN-DC is our new acronym for our knowledge sharing network. (Formerly the Aboriginal Nutrition Network
We have learned through time honored tradition the role and responsibilities we carry in our connection to food and water. We know these to be medicines and therefore family to the generations that have come before and the faces that are yet to come to this world.
When we think of food and water as family, we honour a kinship
that can be shared with our clients and our personal and professional development.
We learn from each plant, animal and waterway and understand that there is an ecology of intimacies at work with how we approach our dietetic practice. Indigenous peoples have been in this relational space with food and water since time immemorial and we honour the shared knowledge that is held by our Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island to help us connect our mind, body and spirits.
We share our knowledge and Indigenous world views with our clients, fellow Networks and ourselves to build a stronger dietetic practice that honours the past to enlighten the present.
“They tried to bury us, but they didn’t know we were seeds.”
Grow, cook and learn with us at the Indigenous Nutritional Knowledge Information Network
. We look forward to hearing from you all.
