Local Food Experiments

 

One of the creative and innovative work we have done throughout the 10 months of Being and Becoming Indigenous project in the Mollo Mountain in Timor, East Nusa Tenggara is to explore our local food potential. Together with Mollo’s indigenous youth and elders, we documented food crops and traditional recipes for processing natural produces in Mollo. This activity made us realized that we had been living in a region that is rich in biodiversity and has a very strong food culture. Through this movement, we invite young people to build awareness of their local food that is varied, cheap and has a high nutritional content. Our activities are basically an effort against imported food hegemony and food uniformity. By discussing about food, we will also dive into other important issues namely environmental sustainability and access to indigenous lands and forests as our collective food source. Talking the local food, talking the future.
