Growing Chefs! Ontario: Indigenous Fishing, Hunting, and Harvesting with Knowledge-keeper Steven Ireland
Indigenous Fishing, Hunting, and Harvesting with Knowledge-keeper Steven Ireland
We are so grateful to share the teachings of Knowledge-keeper Steven Ireland of the Oneida Nation of the Thames. Steven shares his experiences and the importance of fishing and hunting as sustenance and duty for Indigenous peoples. He also shared with us the importance of coming to the river with good intentions and that the animals will acknowledge that, like the bullfrogs, birds and fish that joined us while filming. We are honoured to receive these teachings and share them with our community in hopes of working towards reconciliation and further protections of Indigenous Fishing and Hunting Rights under our treaty responsibilities.
Thank you to Steven Ireland for his time and teachings, we hope you enjoy!
