Dr. Jennifer Grenz

When: October 18, 2022, 12 pm – 1pm
Where: Online or In Person (CAWP Caseroom, Forest Sciences Centre Room 2916)

This event is free and will be held virtually and in person. Lunch will be provided to the first 50 in-person attendees and granted on a first-come, first-served basis.


Colonial notions of naturalness and Indigeneity have been the cornerstone of modern, Eden-based ecology. Applying Indigenous Ecology honours the stories of the land, past, present, and future, confronting those notions with the TRUTHS of our lands and peoples.

Dr. Jennifer Grenz will share some of her journey with her Gitselasu and Quw’tsun friends and co-researchers as they work toward the reclamation and revitalization of Indigenous food systems through storytelling. It turns out the most important lessons, are in the subplots.
