Gifts From Our Relations- Indigenous Original Foods Guide

The National Indigenous Diabetes Association produced a resource booklet honouring 18 commonly consumed traditional foods (plants/animals) that are Indigenous to Turtle Island. This guide provides insight into original food consumption as a means of reducing the incidence and prevalence of type 2 diabetes in First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities, as well as providing information for those living with diabetes and looking to self-manage through diet.
