Food is our Medicine – (Post 4 – Module 3)

Food is our Medicine is an interesting website where I learned more about Native plants, landscaping projects, Seneca people and their policy on re-instating local indigenous species on Seneca lands. The importance of this policy and its potential implications are of value since “The Seneca Nation has demonstrated its commitment to continuing and expanding efforts to reintroduce Native species to Seneca territories. The Seneca Nation and its planting policy can serve as a model for other Native Nations as they work to reintroduce the species that have, for so long, played a secondary role in the life and health of many indigenous peoples.” Please see the policy .pdf attached.
