Discover Research Initiatives

Indigenous research partnerships are addressing critical global issues around food security, environmental sustainability, ethical frameworks, cultural resilience, and ways of knowings.

Current projects include Sharing Our Wisdom: A Holistic Aboriginal Health Initiative, and the food security mapping initiative, Using Land-based Stewardship to Improve Health and Wellness Among Vancouver Urban Aboriginal Populations. Resources that support these projects include food security intervention tools, a list of related recent literature, and links to food security projects and resources across Canada.

In addition, the Plant Knowledge page is a growing database for available information on the medicinal and food plants currently growing in the Indigenous Research and Education Garden at the UBC Farm. This information is gathered and kept up to date by undergraduate students.
