“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
My current research uses a Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) lens to examine the respective “good-living philosophies” of two Indigenous communities regarding food and seed sovereignty: that of the Māori of Aotearoa–New Zealand and that of the Quechua people of Peru. A native Peruvian Indigenous scholar, I emigrated to Aotearoa at a young age, inspiring a collaborative and cross-cultural approach to my work in food and environmental justice, sustainable global development, and public policy.
