A graduate of Columbia University, Mariah is passionate about food sovereignty and health and wellness. Mariah created INDIGIKITCHEN, a web-video cooking show that teaches viewers to prepare traditional pre-contact foods for modern, healthy meals. Mariah leads culturally responsive wellness classes like Powwow Zumba to encourage healthy lifestyles in her community, in addition to other classes focused on environmentalism.
“I’m passionate about getting people excited about food sovereignty, but in ways that make it accessible. I think it’s important for indigenous people around the world to decolonize their minds, diets, and really think about wellness from a traditional perspective.”
