The Decolonizing Diet Project

This event is made possible by GRCC’s Native American Student Organization (NASO), as part of their Native American Heritage Fund grant work.

Speakers: Dr. Martin Reinhardt
Dr. Martin Reinhardt, professor of Native American Studies at Northern Michigan University and co-owner and education division director of First Nations, LLC, presents on the Decolonizing Diet Project.

Camren Stott
Anishinaabe Personal Chef

In this presentation, Dr. Reinhardt and Chef Stott addresses the successes, discuss the issues, and cover how traditional foods and agriculture sustain health, preserves the culture and respect the earth. This talk presents an opportunity for participants to experience how to utilize food sovereignty to help restore interdependent relationship with the land, animals, and plants that provide us with resources to nourish ourselves, and to find identity through this practice.

We will learn from Dr. Reinhardt how the Decolonizing Diet Project provides us with research-based evidence that a diet based on Indigenous foods can have significant positive impacts on our overall health.

The events are held at GRCC’s Wisner-Bottral Applied Technology Center (ATC) at 151 Fountain St. NE. For more information, please contact the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education at (616) 234-3690, or email culinary@grcc.edu.
