Sanjay Rawal: “Food sovereignty in Indian Country”
Sanjay Rawal is the filmmaker behind “Gather,” a new documentary about a growing movement amongst Indigenous Americans to reclaim their spiritual and cultural identities through obtaining sovereignty over their ancestral food systems. Tony and Sanjay discuss how Christopher Columbus was like Mark Zuckerberg, how killing one buffalo killed two Lakota warriors, earning trust in Indian Country, hunting and boiling packrats, how genocide has taken a different form, how we’re screwed if we don’t develop food sovereignty, our wobbly supply chain, and how to have hope for the future.
Find out more about “Gather” at https://gather.film/, and see it on Netflix in November.
