The unpredictability of climate crisis (i.e. the lasting cooler temperatures throughout the spring), as well as the COVID -19 public health crisis has challenged the Working Group on Indigenous Food Sovereignty (WGIFS) - Indigenous Food and Freedom School (IFFS) and Wild Salmon Caravan (WSC) to demonstrate a chaordic leadership style. Since the COVID-19 lockdown we have convened monthly webinars titled: 1). Putting our Solidarity Economy into Action During times of Crisis, and 2). Indigenous Resilience - Fraction Action Plans.

Building on our 2020 Vision, we feel it is more important now than ever to advocate for the creation of an Urban Indigenous foodscape in Strathcona park. An Indigenous foodscape would breathe some much needed social and ecological resilience into the downtown eastside of Vancouver by realizing our vision of restoring Indigenous foodlands, establishing an Indigenous seed heritage garden, as well as building an Indigenous feast hall complete with large scale community kitchen for preparing, preserving, storing and sharing large amounts of food.

We travel together to honor and celebrate the spirit of wild salmon. Along the way we will share knowledge, wisdom, and values that highlight some of the most sustainable wild salmon fisheries that have persisted since time immemorial.
