Agriculture Podcast Delves into Navajo Food Sovereignty
PRESS RELEASE — November 9, 2019
Austin TX, USA—Friendly farming podcast One to Grow On is highlighting Navajo voices on food sovereignty. This November, hear host Hallie Casey interview Navajo activists and farmers about food sovereignty on the reservation.
The Austin-based podcast digs into questions about agriculture and tries to understand how food production impacts us and our world. One to Grow On answers real peoples’ questions about their food, and the people and stories behind it through a friendly conversation between a father and daughter (Chris and Hallie Casey).
The first of the two Navajo-focused episodes dropped last Tuesday. It is an interview between Hallie Casey and Nate Etsitty and Felix Earle. Etsitty and Earle are both permaculturists and food activists from the Arizona portion of the Navajo reservation. In the interview, they speak on the challenges that indigenous peoples face building food and farm systems, how the legacy of colonialism effects and intensifies those challenges and what non-Native allies can do to make a difference.
In the second interview, Andi Murphy, a reporter and podcaster herself, discusses the consumer-end of the value chain, and talks about the hurdles to effective health and nutrition education.
“Maybe we need to see people in front of us, who look like us, just cooking with us.” - Andi Murphy
Casey has previously worked on the Navajo Nation with farmers and youth. In the podcast, she, along with her producer and co-host/father, bring joy to the often wearisome subjects of food and farming. Find these episodes and more at onetogrowonpod.com.
