Cooking for Reconciliation at Skwachays Lodge

Cooking for Reconciliation is a journey toward Truth and Reconciliation using Indigenous foods to create a better understanding of pre-colonial Indigenous culture and the impact of colonization.

Our traditional foods have the ability to nourish and cultivate awareness and compassion. That is the real heart and soul of Indigeneity. How we think and conceptualize ourselves. How we tell one another about ourselves and how we create beauty, comfort, food, art, tradition, song and story telling. – Rich Francis
