Join Joshua Hoyt for a dis­cus­sion on for­ag­ing, a word empha­siz­ing the act of search­ing for wild edi­bles, at 6 p.m., March 16.

While mod­ern for­ag­ing is often about the search, indige­nous peo­ple thought very dif­fer­ent­ly about what it meant to get food from their environment.

Far from a pas­sive, prim­i­tive activ­i­ty, indige­nous food gath­er­ing was based on a rad­i­cal, ambi­tious notion; with gen­er­a­tions of care­ful man­age­ment, the whole land­scape can be a food garden.

Joshua Hoyt (Tur­tle Moun­tain Band of the Chippe­wa) worked as a fish­er­man in Alas­ka dur­ing the sum­mer of his fresh­man year in col­lege. He has worked in the food sys­tem ever since.

He spent four years as a pro­fes­sion­al cook in Seat­tle, Wash­ing­ton, and Palo Alto, Cal­i­for­nia. After time work­ing as a culi­nary con­sul­tant for a Japan­ese food start­up and as a doc­u­men­tary radio producer/instructor for the Stan­ford Sto­ry­telling Project, he found­ed the Amer­i­can Indi­an Child Resource Cen­ter, a place to com­bine all of his passions.

For the past four years, he has led pro­gram­ming for tran­si­tion­al age youth by teach­ing 10-week cours­es cov­er­ing cui­sine regions of North Amer­i­can indige­nous people.
