The White/Wiphala Paper on Indigenous Peoples' food systems
This paper was written by Indigenous Peoples from across the world in a format that is understandable by non-indigenous scientists to explain why our food systems can contribute so much to the world. It advocates that lessons can be learnt from Indigenous Peoples’ approach to food, which will contribute to the resilience and sustainability of food systems worldwide, as well as supporting the wellbeing of Indigenous Peoples. In this vein, this Paper provides evidence on the sustainability of Indigenous Peoples’ food systems, including the ways in which they have proven resilient over time. The Paper articulates the importance of respecting Indigenous Peoples’ rights to ensure the preservation of their foods systems, and the value this can add to tackling emerging challenges that face mankind.
