Diasporic Herbal Transmission workshop with Sankona Anacaona Botanical’s Medicine Monday

View this post on Instagram

Some slides from the exploration of ancestral food medicine demo I was invited to facilitate tonight at Taina’s Medicine Mondays 🔥@sankofa.anacaona.botanicals . . Dedicated to my father who imprinted me with food knowledge. It might take me the rest of my life to recall the precise taste flavor he manifested for dishes (I cook well but not known for consistency), knowing Family knowledge is cultural transmission. If it keeps us nourished it is sustainable. . . We covered the Silk Road and where the tarka plants were native to and wondered how and when by whom they were migrated to Bengal region. This is ancient permaculture. Older by thousands of years than the first cross regional trade routes. . . As diasporic peoples we are master adapters. How might we lessen the burden on Native people and land (including our own) + support the rematriation of Native medicine ? Shared my methodology. . . It was a choose your own adventure! I shared two delicious curries cucumber potato summer curry and fried egg tomato curry. Yesterday I made these just as he might.
