S3 Ep. 47 Exploring the History of Kalo and Bringing it the Continent with Leialoha Ka‘ula, Jonathan Cruz, and Tara Maudrie
In this episode, Tara Maudrie is in conversation with Leialoha Ka‘ula and Jonathan Cruz about their project planting Kalo on the continent. They discuss their ancestral connection to Kalo and how the garden is not just a space for growing food, but it's also a way to perpetuate their culture. They explain how growing Kalo has become a metaphor for their organization; it’s reflective of their ability to adapt, be resilient, and to continue on despite the hardships that they encounter. The garden has allowed them to build a relationship with the community, other Hawaiians on the continent, and other Native communities as a way to decolonize and dismantle Western ideologies that they were forced to assimilate to.
This episode references the article titled “Growing Kalo (Taro) in the Continental United States” by Leialoha Ka‘ula, BA, Jonathan Cruz, BS, Natlie Dutro, BS, Donna Ching, MN, Kawehilani Wong, BA, and Alexandra Malia Jackson, PhD.

They explored Osage’s mobile market that aims to create new systems that are uniquely Indigenous and support ending food insecurity in their community and beyond. They also discussed growing traditional and endangered seeds for more nutritional food staples, and a return to Native produce.

S3 Ep. 45 Exploring Relationality in Food Sovereignty with Tara Maudrie and Dr. Cassandra Nguyen
"It's our duty as the original stewards of this land to cultivate balanced and healthy relationships with all aspects of our food systems so that we can all continue to thrive."
In this episode, Cassandra Nguyen is in conversation with Tara Maudrie about food sovereignty, which is more about the idea of relational stewardship through our foodways, rather than agency. She reminds us to think about whose knowledge and frameworks we are privileging in the way we evaluate and measure outcomes. She also hopes the framework will be used by communities as they work to revitalize, strengthen, and grow their foodways, as well as aid them as they push back and tell the story of their food system initiatives to incorporate an assets-based perspective.
This episode references the article titled “Food Security and Food Sovereignty: The Difference Between Surviving and Thriving” by Tara L. Maudrie, MSPH, Cassandra J. Nguyen, PhD, Rachel E.

S3 Ep. 44 Exploring a Field Guide to Community Arts Prescription with Dr. Tasha Golden
“Arts and prescription is such an important model on its own, and it's also an example of what we can do when we allow ourselves to imagine that things can be different than they have been.”
In this episode, Dr. Tasha Golden discusses what “arts on prescription” is, what we’ve learned about it from research and emerging models, and why it matters for improving community and whole-person health. She encourages us to imagine what it means to have well being and what it would look like if our health care systems/providers were a part of not only that absence of disease, but the presence of well being in people's lives.
This episode references the resource titled "Arts on Prescription: A Field Guide for US Communities" and coincides with the HPP article titled "Defining “Arts Participation” for Public Health Research."
