RETURN: Native American Women Reclaim Foodways for Health & Spirit


RETURN: NATIVE AMERICAN WOMEN RECLAIM FOODWAYS FOR HEALTH & SPIRIT is about empowering people to overcome their current circumstances through eating as their ancestors did — nutritiously and locally. RETURN explores the food-sovereignty movement occurring across the country through the stories of women championing the return to traditional food sources. The documentary features the charismatic Roxanne Swentzell from Santa Clara Pueblo in New Mexico, whose Pueblo Food Experience project is transforming lives in her community and across the continent by Tlingit, Muckleshoot, Oglala Sioux, Menominee and Seneca women. Through personal, character-based storytelling, RETURN offers examples of alternative pathways to health and wellness for American Indians and demonstrates how returning to ancestral food sources can strengthen cultural ties to each other and to one's heritage.
