Deeply Rooted

Exploring environmental justice in a changing Washington.

Decolonizing your plate

Colonization and assimilation took away customs and traditional foods from native communities. Now, local chefs, educators and nutritionists are bringing back indigenous knowledge of food systems. Growing and serving traditional, locally sourced foods helps people reconnect to the land and to their history, in the process making choices better for both the environment and their health.
