Participates in 1 Session

Christianna Jones is an Anishnaabe Kwe of the Black Water Snake Clan from Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory on Manitoulin Island. 

Jones is a graduate of Laurentian University where she earned her BA in Indigenous Studies.  She is employed as the apprenticeship coordinator with Wii-ni n’guch-tood Labour Market Services, the employment and training division, of the Wikwemikong Development Commission.  Her gardening skills were learned from her mother who as a single parent raised four children and fed many of their friends from what she grew. Jones enjoys plant germination, gardening, harvesting and seed saving and offers community workshops to help others learn these skills.

Jones believes that healing the four aspects of self will come from a connection to the land. She believes that eating more locally grown and less processed food is key to overall health and balance.  Jones’ hopes and dreams are that all Indigenous communities will have food centres that grow, harvest and store locally sourced food for community access.
