Local Food Experiments
Multi-country · Rimbawan Muda Indonesia

One of the creative and innovative works we have done throughout the 10 months of the Being and Becoming Indigenous project in the Mollo Mountain in Timor, East Nusa Tenggara is to explore our local food potential. Together with Mollo’s indigenous youth and elders, we documented food crops and traditional recipes for processing natural produces in Mollo. This activity made us realise that we had been living in a region that is rich in biodiversity and has a very strong food culture.

Through this movement, we invite young people to build awareness of their local food that is varied, cheap and has a high nutritional content. Our activities are basically an effort against imported food hegemony and food uniformity. By discussing food, we will also dive into other important issues namely environmental sustainability and access to indigenous lands and forests as our collective food source. Talking about the local food, talking about the future.
