Indigenous Veganism w/ Claudia Serrato
(part of Mujeres de Maiz Spring 2015 Season)
Centered on the principalities of Indigeneity, this herstorical workshop engages our understanding of eating, diet, and health towards decolonizing and reclaiming veganism towards the healing of all our relations through methods of decolonizing our diets through Mesoamerican/Indigenous cuisine, which is the cultural food palate of the facilitator. However, these techniques and ways of knowing and being in the kitchen are applicable to other cultural and ancestral foodways. We will learn some knife skills, prepare some #CleanEating meals, and work on Indigenizing the plating (food presentation) experience <3
