Recognizing the value of Indigenous healing practices and making them available for Indigenous patients where requested was the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action 22:
We call upon those who can effect change within the Canadian health-care system to recognize the value of Aboriginal healing practices and use them in the treatment of Aboriginal patients in collaboration with Aboriginal healers and Elders where requested by Aboriginal patients. (TRC Action item 22)
In 2019, as part of its journey towards reconciliation, Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba created the Indigenous Advisory Circle. This group of leaders from First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities across Manitoba generously share their wisdom and counsel with the Foundation, as it supports culturally safe programming, resources and spaces in the hospital.
We are so grateful to Foundation donors and community leaders, who make important initiatives like the Indigenous Healing Space at HSC Children’s possible. We look forward to celebrating the beginning of this project with you.
