Hatch honors National Indigenous Peoples Day with release of Indigenous cuisine cookbook

June 19, 2020

National Indigenous Peoples Day recognizes the cultures and contributions of the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Indigenous peoples of Canada. First celebrated in 1996, June 21 was chosen because of its cultural significance to the summer solstice, a day in which many Indigenous Peoples and communities celebrate their traditional heritage.

This year, to honor the day, and celebrate the culinary culture of Indigenous Peoples, we have collected traditional recipes from our Indigenous partner communities, clients, and employees across the country. Through the pages of this cookbook we recognize our Indigenous heritage through traditional foods, hunting and gathering techniques, and personal stories of Inuit, First Nations, and Métis peoples

We hope this cookbook lets you revel in some new tastes while offering a greater awareness and perspective of our country’s origins.
