Abstract

Official assessments of Canadian food security, which greatly inform policy and perception, paint an
insufficient picture of the ways many Indigenous peoples, and in particular Indigenous children who are
most impacted by food insecurity, actually experience and understand the problem. This article begins
with a discussion of how these metrics neglect the vital connection between access to Indigenous food
systems and Indigenous food security. To address the serious food insecurity experienced by Indigenous
peoples, this connection must be acknowledged, and revitalisation of these food systems, which are damaged by settler-colonial practices, must become a focus of the discourse and action. Indigenous elders
believe children will be pivotal in revitalisation. In this spirit, this article traces experiential learning
projects on revitalisation, in which young people unsettle the settler discourse of food security and take
action in small but important ways.
