About the Event

The first step towards truly being an ally towards marginalized communities is to listen, observe, and acknowledge not only our personal privilege but the lack of privilege said communities face - especially the indigenous communities in Canada. The Indigenous and Allied Health Presentation educates you on the deep-rooted colonization of the First Nations and indigenous peoples of Canada and how our history has worked to erase the traditions of the indigenous as well as the discrimination our Indigenous communities are still facing in 2022. By the end of the presentation, you will learn how to be a better ally to our communities and how to better identify discrimination and microaggressions against the Indigenous peoples in Canada.
