A new program, "Sovereign Table: Traditional Foods Shaping Future Diets," from producer Jackie Coffin premieres on Montana PBS Thursday, Jan. 13 at 7 p.m..
"The answers to some of our biggest and most-threatening problems lay in the way we eat," Coffin said. "This program features the stories of Indigenous people and communities working one day at a time to change the food system and combat climate change, socioeconomic instability, biodiversity loss, supply-chain problems and more, using the foods eaten by their relatives for thousands of years."
Sovereign Table explores the concepts, challenges, and opportunities of the food sovereignty movement in Montana.
In an era of self-determination, Indigenous people, organizations, and tribes are utilizing their right to cultivate traditional foods, ushering in an era of cultural healing.
"More than just food, 'Sovereign Table' urges people to re-examine their relationships with the plants and animals that provide food and the planet as a whole," Coffin said.
