Indigenous Peoples have explored, researched, refined and perfected healing traditions for millennia. These traditions continue to provide guidance for the protection and promotion of individual and community health throughout our territories and communities. Unfortunately, the process of colonization has resulted in these traditions being devalued, denigrated, and alienated by the mainstream society and health system. Colonization and marginalization has resulted in some of the worst health outcomes in the world being found in Indigenous communities in Canada. Elders and Healers continue to carry and develop Indigenous healing traditions to this day, and they continue to make calls for providing support for these traditions as part of any response to the dismal determinants of health and poor health outcomes in many of our communities and nations.
