Host: Tara Gatewood
Thursday, June 13, 2013 – The Pre-Contact Diet
The Paleo Diet is the newest health trend buzzing around the country. Followers of the diet only eat foods that come from hunter-gather ancestors including high protein, fruits and veggies. Returning to traditional diets is not a new idea, many Native organizations also promote a return to traditional diets. How realistic is it to eat a diet of only foods that our ancestors ate? Communities across Indian country are dealing with health issues related to obesity. Is a diet focused on traditional foods the answer? Guests include: Dr. Martin Reinhardt (Anishinaabe Ojibway) principal investigator for the Decolonizing Diet Project.
