Food sovereignty is a process aiming at a fulfilling life in exercise of our rights to know what we are eating and to maintain our identities as people from the earth, the lake independent from the agroindustrial food. Every day when we eat potatoes, olluco, mashua, oca, quinua, maize, alpaca meat, when we drink fresh spring water, collect our own vegetables, use natural salt we are asserting our cultural identities as quechua or aymara people. Our diverse food habits are the expression of our wisdom and community practices. That is why we engage in dialogue with scientists, urban citizen and in the future with politicians. We want to form part of a plurality of culinary cultures for humankind, each one contributing with particular values of nurturing nature, society and the spirits.
