dc.description.abstractThis story is a recollection and discussion of the personal, social and historical creation and operation of the Our Sustenance program; an Indigenous food sovereignty and security initiative at the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory in Southern Ontario, Canada. This dissertation includes a discussion of Indigenous food connection as a framework for understanding the social, cultural, and community connections to food, food knowledge, and how that fits into operating a food security initiative. Growing food connects to culture, language, community building, and social inequities within a positive experience that creates trust and knowledge transfer. The themes of this discussion include Indigenous ways of knowing, food knowledge transfer, community building, and the creation and inclusion of food sovereignty, security, and the promotion of health and well-being for all facets of whole-person health. The Six Nations specific research also discusses the potential for the use of similar approaches across communities and cultures. The autoethnographic creation of knowledge uses a Haudenosaunee mound garden to ‘grow a garden’ of understanding that layers the social and personal to understand Six Nations community food system.
