Visioning the Future is a series of webinars from the National Collaborating Centre for Indigenous Health (NCCIH) offering a vision for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Peoples’ public health. These webinars are a development of the National Collaborating Centre for Indigenous Health’s 2021 publication, “Visioning the Future: First Nations, Inuit, & Métis Population and Public Health”.
In this webinar (the fourth in the series), Dr. Shannon Waters will examine the impact of the disrupted relationship between Indigenous Peoples and place (land, water, animals, plants) on the health of the land and all living beings. She will consider best practices for re-establishing Indigenous Peoples’ connection to and ownership/co-governance of the natural environment. Dr. Chris Mushquash will present ways in which historical and ongoing processes of colonization have disrupted Indigenous Peoples’ health and mental wellness. He will examine a full spectrum of culturally and contextually appropriate supports and services to promote Indigenous Peoples’ mental health.
