Indigenous Healing Knowledges

9:00-12:00: Learning from Indigenous Healers

13:00-16:00: Youth exploration of Indigenous Healing Knowledges

Come join us for an online gathering, as we get to hear from various Elders, Knowledge Keepers and youth on their experiences and approaches to healing.

Today, more than ever, Indigenous peoples need knowledge of ways to enhance their immune systems, avoid conditions such as diabetes and high stress, in order to prevent being vulnerable to conditions such as COVID19.

In this context, this research aims to enhance the understanding of Indigenous worldview and epistemology in relation to healing and well-being, by presenting the teachings of various healing practitioners including those of the Cree, Métis, and Haudenosaunee. These Indigenous Healers referred to as speakers engage in healing practices in the context of social work, counselling, talk therapy, energy work, and those who heal through modalities of music, rhythm, sound, and song. They will offer teachings in their epistemological and cosmological approaches to their work and will inform an audience in areas of First Peoples Studies, Counselling, Social Work, Health Professionals, Sociological and Psychological scholars, and community members.


In order to accommodate social distancing, all of COHDS/ALLab events will be held online. Please note that all of our events are free and open to all, but you need to register!
