dc.description.abstract Indigenous young adults in northern Manitoba face social, economic and health barriers far beyond that experienced by non-Indigenous Canadian young adults. A food crisis in northern Manitoba also persists, as evidenced by high rates of food insecurity and diet-related disease. This community-based participatory research project considers how young adults working on a community farm participate in Indigenous food sovereignty through a photo elicitation project with Oji-Cree young adults employed on a 15-acre community farm and interviews with Elders and community food educators. The outcomes of this research tell a story of community gardening and farming in Garden Hill First Nation (Kistiganwacheeng) as traditional food practices that connect young adults to their culture and supports self-determination, cultural reclamation, and participation in an Oji-Cree food system. Research outcomes also describe an Indigenous food systems course for Oji-Cree young adults that focuses on land-based education. en_US
