Webinar: Cultural safety for Indigenous peoples: A determinant of health

A NCCAH webinar, co-hosted with Northern Health, was held on February 17, 2016 on “Cultural safety for Indigenous peoples: A determinant of health.” Dr. Sarah de Leeuw, Associate Professor in the Northern Medical Program, University of Northern British Columbia and a Research Associate for the National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health, explored how racism has manifested in the way health care services are provided to Indigenous peoples and is thus a barrier to their optimal health. Specifically, the presentation highlighted the ways in which Indigenous people have expressed their realities of experiencing racism, and discussed ways that healthcare professionals might engage with the arts and humanities in order to more deeply reflect on their thoughts about racism and Indigenous peoples. The webinar attracted great interest, with 366 participants in attendance.

Aboriginal Experiences with Racism and its Impacts

This paper is the second in a series of papers focused on anti-Aboriginal racism in Canada. It focuses on the lived and structural forms of racism and provides a brief overview of what racism is, how it intersects with other forms of discrimination, and how it is manifested. The paper examines how the dominant racialized group (i.e., European settlers) expresses racism in historic and current contexts and how Aboriginal people in Canada experience racism in interpersonal, structural and sometimes violent ways. Government policies, healthcare, and judicial systems are also explored for the unique ways in which racism is experienced by Aboriginal peoples and how it impacts their well-being.
