Dr. Martin Reinhardt is president of the Michigan Indian Education Council, lead singer, and songwriter for the band Waawiyayaa (The Circle). He is a tenured professor of Native American Studies at Northern Michigan University, and an Anishinaabe Ojibway citizen of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians from Michigan.
He joined the Riverwise Podcast to discuss how to decolonize food and how to live healthy and grounded with an Indigenous diet. We discuss what it means to follow an Indigenous diet and how these have been shaped by culture, history, and the environment. Learn how decolonizing food is a part of undoing harm caused by colonialism and restoring the autonomy and sovereignty of Indigenous peoples over their food systems.
