7 Acadia First Nation Kespukwitnewaq Moose & Fish Harvest The Moose and Fish Harvesting Program for youth, established in 2010 with ADI food security funding in Acadia First Nation, NS, aims to address harvesting and distribution aspects of food security and provide youth the opportunity to learn traditional hunting and fishing methods. Elders (and mentors) teach the youth to properly trap, fish, and harvest food during week-long land-based camps. The camps educate youth on the importance of traditional food harvesting and preparation, harvesting laws and regulations, wilderness survival techniques and, medicinal and edible plants, all of which promote culture, food security and sustainability within the community. Harvested foods are shared with Elders and other community members, creating an environment in which the entire community can benefit from healthy and traditional food alternatives.
