CHIPPEWAS OF RAMA FIRST NATION — Indigenous chef Nephi Craig looks forward to speaking about Indigenous Foods for Health: Trauma, Violence, and Sugar at the 2nd Annual Anishinabek Nation Diabetes Conference, Embracing Diabetes with Knowledge and Care scheduled on March 6-7 at Casino Rama in Chippewas of Rama First Nation.

“My work is unique as an executive chef in that I have kind of a dual role as an executive chef and a clinician,” Craig says. “As a behavioural health technician and certified relapse prevention specialist, I work in mental health and we operate a cafe, Café Gozhóó, on the White Mountain Apache Tribe. We provide clinical services, we have prevention, vocational training in culinary arts and hospitality, and we work with clients in recovery on a regular basis.”

Craig says his path as an executive chef led him to his role, adding that he is also a person in recovery with 12 years of sobriety.
