Voices and Flavours from the Earth: Visualising Food Sovereignty in the Andes

Chapter 6. Biographies of wise men and women

Here are the life stories of some of the community-based persons in the food sovereignty process who have been thinking with the power of nature and defending their individual and collective rights to eat healthy food. Their language is peaceful, yet allusive – even sometimes enigmatic. They personify their communal knowledge with varying degrees of coherence. Yet, when they speak about their lives of nurturing, farming and herding, they do so with a joy embodying a world-view which harmonises celebration and work.
