Giving Thanks for the Food

Thu. 11/24 11a: It’s the season of gratitude and we are giving thanks for the food. Today, millions will be working on a tasty feast, but what is the relationship between food and culture? Some research shows that 60 percent of the world’s food originates from indigenous sources. 

What is the story of foods within your tribe? What is your perception of food and its ability to enhance culture? Do you live to eat, or eat to live? What does the food you love to cook and eat reveal about you?

Guests include Chef Freddie Bitsoie (Navajo) and Chef Richard Anguksuar LaFortune (Yupik) food blogger/Indigenous Food Project.
