Aboriginal Peoples' Health [Part I]

Aboriginal Peoples' Health [Part I] - Hi, friend Blogbaru, in this article entitled Aboriginal Peoples' Health [Part I], we have prepared this article well and concise to be easy to understand for you to read and can be taken inside information. hopefully the contents of the post Article community health, Article First Nations, Article public health, Article youth, that we write this you can understand and useful. okay, happy reading.

May 22, 2012 : Health On Earth will be dedicating 2 of our shows on Aboriginal people's health.

Dr. Kent Saylor, a Pediatrician at the Montreal Children's Hospital and member of the Mohawk Nation, encourages us to partner with local community leaders who knows their language, priorities, and people. He highlighted that we should be aware of cultural safety, to understand the historical, political, and culture issues that impact the livelihood of Aboriginal peoples of Canada.

We also interviewed Mrs. Minnie Grey. She has worked her career to improve the quality of life in northern Canada. Born in Nunavik, she has involved in regional partnership projects in crime prevention and youth and children protection. One of her projects is to collaborate with the Nunavik Elderly Association to have them share community values, customs, and cultures to high schools and the local radio. 'It is important to raise our children by maintaining our appreciation in life, language, and culture,'says Mrs. Grey.

As future adults, we shall keep an open mind and be respectful to our people. Shortage of housing, high cost of living, food insecurity, and lack of medical services, are only some issues experienced by Aboriginal communities. We need to educate ourselves and be informed about Aboriginal peoples of Canada.
