The Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health, based at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, is hosting a guest lecture on Monday, November 18, in celebration of Native American Heritage Month.
Ms. Denisa Livingston (Diné Nation) will discuss the food sovereignty movement aimed at decolonizing food systems while combatting multiple public health challenges, from food insecurity to heart disease and type 2 diabetes. By exercising food sovereignty, tribal nations are also rebuilding resilient agricultural practices.
Ms. Livingston is a food justice organizer with the Diné Community Advocacy Alliance, an Ashoka Fellow, Slow Food International Indigenous Councilor of the Global North, 2017-2018 Empowered-to-Serve National Ambassador of the American Heart Association, and a social entrepreneur. She spearheaded the Navajo Nation’s junk food tax initiative.
