For the past seven years, Byron Beardy has been Food Security Coordinator for Four Arrows Regional Health Authority Inc. He’s seen first-hand the need for Indigenous communities to reconnect with their food systems. Hearing numerous stories of time spent on the land – growing, gathering, hunting, fishing and trapping – led to Byron’s vision for the Indigenous Food Sovereignty Summit.

Find out more about the goals and questions that will be driving the summit by reading the Northern Sun
