Speakers’ Corner: Johl Ringuette Discusses Wild Garlic from the POV of The First Nations and European Explorers (11:00-11:25)

Johl discusses the use of domesticated and wild garlic by First Nations in 18th and 19th century Canada and how it influenced and was influenced by European settlers. Also, the reaction of First Nations to European use of garlic.

Johl Whiteduck Ringuette’s mission has been to learn, educate and share his knowledge of his Aboriginal culture and traditions.  At the top of that list is his passion for cooking Aboriginal cuisine. For the past twelve years, he has been catering through his company ‘Ringfire Productions’  –  completely Native-run and operated. Now he has opened a storefront restaurant, Nish Dish at 690 Bloor St. West. The menu is based on traditional Anishnawbe (Nish) food and changes daily depending on traditional feasts and ceremonies. Johl is very proud that his place is a First Nations owned and operated Food Emporium specializing in Native cuisine and culture here in Toronto. He invites you to come and celebrate and experience traditional food as medicine nourishing the spirit.
