Slow Food Presidia – Native Treasures

Slow Food encourages and supports Indigenous peoples to uphold their food traditions as the custodians of irreplaceable inherited knowledge, in particular through the Presidia projects and the Terra Madre network of food communities. In 2011 the first Indigenous Terra Madre international forum was held and in May 2012 Slow Food President Carlo Petrini became the first guest speaker in history at the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. Here we take a look at some of the remarkable products being protected by Indigenous peoples in the Slow Food network around the world.
