Indigenous and vegan

Posted by SOSA Webteam on April 20, 2018 in News

Indigenous Studies and SOSA professor Dr. Margaret Robinson sat down with Vice to talk about how Indigenous food and cultural values relate to veganism, a movement that refrains from using animal products, often seen as a bastion of white privilege. Indigenous people and vegan activists are often portrayed as natural enemies, especially when vegan activists oppose the exercise of Aboriginal and treaty rights to hunt and fish. While these disagreements are significant, Margaret highlights the values that Indigenous communities and vegans have in common.  She will be discussing her work in this area at Winnipeg Vegfest in September.
