The Greatest Story Never Told: Indigenous Habit Expansion in the Americas with Lyla June
Workshop Length : 1 hr 30 mins
Workshop Description :
Contrary to popular belief, there is ample evidence of extensive land management on the part of indigenous peoples from Alaska to patagonia. From rhizome gardens in the pacific northwest, to grass lands stewardship by the great plains nation,. to chestnut edens in the kentucky mountains, to poly culture fruit forests of the mayan civilizations, to pehuen nut cultivation in the andes mountain range, to clam garden construction along bountiful coastlines, indigenous peoples enhanced the food and medicinal plant bearing capacity of every region in the Americas. Drawing from her doctoral research, Lyla June will discuss the nature of these food systems, why their stories were never told, and how humanity can bring them back.
