Introduction and Literature Review

2 Literature Review

Stevie D. Jonathan

This section presents a brief review of the literature on sustainable self-determination, traditional food systems, and community supports and transmission of knowledge. The research will explore each of these concepts to further contribute to the field, while honoring the need for local knowledge to be shared when considering sustainable self-determination efforts.  It is important to note that this section covers only a small portion of literature within the field of Indigenous foods and food sovereignty but manages to establish the necessary baseline for familiarity, before continuing on to the research findings and into this educational resource. Additionally, an overview of the Great Law is provided; however, the section offered is only a small summary, which cannot do this oral narrative justice (in comparison, for example, to the annual recital of the Great Law, as outlined in the third section of this resource).
