Special thanks to all involved in this project, especially the participants and the Six Nations of the Grand River community for allowing the time and space for these conversations on Indigenous foods and food sovereignty to happen. Our hope is that the information we gathered to produce this open education resource can answer to the recommendations we heard from our community. The major recommendation we are aiming to answer and share with others is the need for communities to come together to share knowledge and support each other in food sovereignty efforts, contributing to our cultural maintenance and revitalization as Haudenosaunee peoples.
