Abstract
Series of videos intended to contribute to the evidence base used to make global policies to protect Indigenous Peoples' food resources and to promote good health. Here are two that relate to nutrition in the Arctic:
The Gwich'in and Their Traditional Foods
In the northern Northwest Territories of Canada within the Gwich'in Nation is the community of Tetlit Zheh. In this rural Arctic setting, the Gwich'in Traditional Food Project has actively promoted local wildlife foods and healthy market foods in many community programs for their cultural and health benefits.
The Inuit and Their Indigenous Foods
On Baffin Island, within the Nunavut Territory, the rural community of Pangnirtung uses traditional knowledge and country food to address emerging health patterns resulting from transition in nutrition and all facets of life.
