Indigenous Voices, Stories, and Healthcare at the University of Northern British Columbia, Northwest Campus (Terrace)
The HARC team was inspired and encouraged by the energy and conversations surrounding our most recent workshop, “Indigenous Voices, Stories, and Healthcare” held at the UNBC Northwest Campus (Terrace) on September 23rd. Warm thanks and appreciation to our presenters, storytellers, and helpers, Coco Miller, Nicole Halbauer, Erica Wilson, Sarah de Leeuw, and Lisa Striegler and to the Terrace Physician Initiative Group Society (TPIGS) team, as well as to all those that attended and shared the enthusiastic desire to listen and learn from each other! The evening included thoughtful discussions, writing and sharing exercises, storytelling and listening, and even some material art-making in the form of cedar weaving!
Special thanks to our partners UBC, UNBC, and Northern Health (Indigenous Health). We plan to continue to take this and similar workshops on the road (with zoom options available) across northern BC over the next year. If you’d like to discuss bringing a similar workshop to your organization or community, please be in touch with us!
