Healing The Body With United Indian Health Service

Season 10, Episode 4 of 4

While "Food Deserts" is a term used by many to describe urban areas without access to fresh food, this issue is not just one that inner city areas are struggling with. Native peoples in rural areas often lack easy access to healthy, affordable food and a younger generation is witnessing the effects of health issues in their community. This episode explores how a new generation is jump starting several food sovereignty programs across California. The most prominent of these is in Arcata, CA at UIHS' Potawot Community Garden and is serving as an inspiration for other initiatives across California.
