Food, Water, and Traditional Knowledge in Arid Lands

No Poster Showtimes
Sunday April 23 at 2:00pm | FREE ADMISSION

Join us for a short post film discussion moderated by Dr. Maribel Alvarez. Meet filmmaker, interviewees and local experts. Engage with traditional local food growers, advocates and policy makers in a foodways heritage market afterward.

Human beings are putting more stress on our food and water delivery systems than ever before. While some may look to emerging technologies, there is a growing acknowledgement that Traditional Knowledge and Indigenous practices hold tremendous promise for food security in times of population growth, economic inequality, and changing climates.

In this film, practitioners and teachers of Indigenous and Traditional Knowledge from the Southwestern United States and around the globe share their insights on multigenerational, community-based, and culturally-embedded models of food and water sustainability in arid lands.

These models are important for food and water security, but even more, they can also help ensure social justice, economic justice, human rights, and political autonomy across the globe.  (Produced by UA College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and the Southwest Folklife Alliance Inc., USA, in English, 15 mins., Not Rated)
