Aboriginal Innovation Fresh Produce


The Metlakatla village is a progressive community located 5 km north of Prince Rupert on an ancient site occupied for thousands of years by the Metlakatla people. They have recently built a “Green House,” a community initiative supported financially by the Prince Rupert Port Authority.

ICN host Bob Crane talks with Heather Dudoward, Health coordinator for the Community and with Maynard Angus, Manager of Aboriginal Affairs, Prince Rupert Port Authority; the local initiative combined with the port authority’s financial support now assures the community the provision of fresh, healthy and affordable produce year long.

Heather and Maynard also share with the audience the lessons they have learned in implementing the project.
