Centuries of colonization and other factors have disrupted indigenous communities' ability to control their own food systems.  This volume exposes the meaning and importance of food sovereignty for Native peoples in the United States, and asks whether and how it might be achieved and sustained.  The contributors include scholar-activists in the fields of ethnobotany, history, anthropology, nutrition, insect ecology, biology, marine environmentalism, and federal Indian law, as well as indigenous seed savers and keepers, cooks, farmers, spearfishers, and community activists.  This is volume 18 in the New Directions in Native American Studies series.
