    13 Moons of Anishinaabe Nutrition© incorporates Anishinaabe language and traditional stories to teach students about nutrition along with taste testing of traditional food.  This curriculum helps increase awareness of locally grown Indigenous foods and wisdom, in addition to encouraging diversity in our local food systems in the long term.  The benefits of learning about traditional foods and connecting to local resources can positively impact student/staff health-related decisions. Utilizing this curriculum, we support traditional language learning, intergenerational connections, healthy food traditions, and nutrition education around gardening while responding to the need for health equity and cultural competency.  This knowledge is sorely needed for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities to develop the resilience essential to successfully face current challenges related to food and health, as well as those related to all aspects of the environment and our spiritual, mental, emotional, social, and physical health.
