In order to recognize National Indigenous History Month and Indigenous Solidarity Day, look out for weekly information on Indigenous peoples in Canada. With the recent discovery of the mass grave of Indigenous children at the Kamloops Indian Residential School, it is important healthcare providers continue to educate ourselves on Indigenous culture in order to provide culturally safe and patient-centred care.
DID YOU KNOW?
The First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people of Canada have a long and proud tradition of military service to our country. While exact statistics are difficult to determine, the rate of Indigenous participation in Canada’s military efforts over the years has been impressive. These determined service people were often forced to overcome many challenges to serve in uniform, from learning a new language and adapting to cultural differences, to having to travel great distances from their remote communities just to enlist and serve.
