Indigenous people in Canada have faced a number of social, political and legal issues from the Indian Act to residential schools to the Sixties Scoop to overcrowded housing and homelessness, Indigenous people continue to struggle against the structural inequalities that face them.
The Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto in partnership with Waakebiness-Bryce Institute for Indigenous Health (WBIIH), will be presenting speakers and knowledge to start reconciliation in public health. Dr. Margo Greenwood will be the keynote speaker followed by lunch and a panel discussion featuring Dr. Suzanne Stewart, Dr. Margo Greenwood, Elder Wendy Hill, and Indigenous Graduate of the MPH, Erika Pulfer moderated by Dr. Nancy Baxter. We will have posters on Indigenous research and a traditional opening ceremony by Traditional Knowledge Keeper Clayton Shirt.
