Kanenon:we – Original Seeds carries viewers into the grassroots Indigenous seed sovereignty movement led by Haudenosaunee women. It oﬀers a glimpse into the challenges facing the world related to food security. It is a powerful view of what is possible in Indigenous communities working towards food sovereignty. Prior to European contact there was a rich and vibrant diversity of foods, with women primarily responsible for caretaking of the seeds. Genocidal practices including, boarding schools, land theft, forced relocation, imposed religion and even food warfare contributed to a disconnection from our traditional foods and seeds.
