We made a zine about Indigenous food futurisms! It includes 24-pages of all-original work by myself, Monica Braine, junior editor of “Imminent Cuisine,” and seven other Native artists, illustrators, comic book artists, chefs and writers. In this episode we talk about food in Indigenous futurisms and the work in the zine. Purchase the zine and all the stickers here.
