This student-curated exhibition focuses on foodways within Central New York, including local agriculture, Haudenosaunee nations, and international communities, to explore themes of indigenous food sovereignty, justice and access, economic development, and memory and identity. What is the role of food in our lives? Why do the foods we eat matter? How is food connected to broader cultural, political, and economic issues?
