Ancestral Foodways Consultation Questionnaire
Greetings! Thank you for reaching out!
Thank you for your world-serving interest to connect with *your ancestors*. <3
The purpose of this questionnaire is to help us begin to understand the webs of your ancestral peoples, places, and cultures as you understand them -- as well as your areas of greatest interest, so we may tailor our efforts & research to suit! We wish to offer assurance to those who feel they know little about their ancestry -- that one can approach this work regardless of the degree of ancestral information known.
If you prefer to answer these questions over the phone, please call us at 732-306-8400.
There are many big questions below, but only those with *red asterisks* need a response.
Please only answer the questions that feel most relevant to you & your desires.
After receiving your form, we will get in touch to schedule your consultation.
The cost of this consultation is sliding scale $44-144, though in the spirit of reparations, we offer this service as a gift to self-identifying African Americans & Indigenous people
The fruit of this service is a document for you to keep containing our notes, recommendations & recipes. Further, if desired, the Ancestral Foodways Consultation may be paired (and bundled for discounts!) with other related services we offer.
Thank you for saying YES to this adventure. We invite you to imagine, or picture now, in your mind ::
an ancestor of yours, or many - even if you have no idea who or where they are or were - living lives deeply connected to place, their bodies, and to the webs of life that supported them.
We believe that connection to each one of our bloodlines & ancestries may hold some kind of key to the modern dis-ease of our times. We see how stories & experiences of separation from Earth & Home contribute widely to oppressive patterns everywhere.
We hope that each one of us finds our way back to the elemental cultures that, for our survival, understand fundamentally our oneness with Earth & with one another. <3 .
