This course will introduce students to health care from an Aboriginal worldview. From this perspective, the course will examine Aboriginal people’s relationship to the land and the relationship they have with others (such as family, community members, clan members, and Elders) and how this impacts on their health and well-being. Aboriginal healers and healing will also be examined. From there, the course will then look at the impact of colonization on Aboriginal health. Finally, students will have the opportunity to explore health careers and how healthcare workers impact on Aboriginal families and communities.
