Abstract

This book review examines Devon A. Mihesuah's and Elizabeth Hoover's Indigenous Food Sovereignty in the United States: Restoring Cultural Knowledge, Protecting Environments, and Regaining Health. Mihesuah's and Hoover's book highlights movements in the US that combat the health decline colonial food practices have brought upon Indigenous communities. Similarly, the authors recognize the harmful ways that the food industry, as a part of the neoliberal economic system, is wasteful and harming the environment--both at a local and global level. This text sheds light on important issues and ways that Indigenous communities are challenging the food industry by aiming to restore Indigenous food practices and food sovereignty.
