Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Representatives of Northern Michigan University’s Center for Native American Studies will present an overview of the Decolonization Diet Project (DDP) and the recent publication of “The Decolonizing Diet Project Cookbook” this Thursday at 7:00 p.m. at the Peter White Public Library in Marquette.

NMU CNAS Director April Lindala joined the SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to talk about the event and the cookbook.

Lindala said the DDP is an exploratory study of the relationship between people and indigenous foods of the Great Lakes Region.

The research was led by Dr. Martin Reinhardt, Assistant Professor in the Center for Native American Studies at NMU with support from the U.S. Forest Service and Cedar Tree Institute.

She added that an offshoot of the study was the recent publication of “The Decolonizing Diet Project Cookbook,” that promotes the consumption of native foods with new, modern recipes.

The book will be available for purchase, by cash or check, at the event, which is being held in the Shiras room of the library.

LISTEN IN – April Lindala, Director of the NMU Center for Native American studies, on the DDP panel discussion and book event this week in Marquette.
